from thousands of famous people

Progress, Far From Consisting In Change, Depends On Retentiveness. When Change Is Absolute There Remains No Being To Improve And No Direction Is Set For Possible Improvement And When Experience Is Not Retained, As Among Savages, Infancy Is Perpetual. Those Who Cannot Remember The Past Are Condemned To Repeat It. In The First Stage Of Life The Mind Is Frivolous And Easily Distracted, It Misses Progress By Failing In Consecutiveness And Persistence. This Is The Condition Of Children And Barbarians, In Which Instinct Has Learned Nothing From Experience.
~ George Santayana

By It We Share In His Resurrection. Through It We Are Reborn By The Holy Spirit.

Not Only Is Slavery Prohibited In Ohio, But No Free Negroes Are Allowed To Enter The Territory Of That State Or To Hold Property In It.
~ Alexis Charles Henri Clrel de Tocqueville
Grown Ups Never Understand Anything For Themselves, And It Is Tiresome For Children To Be Always And Forever Explaining Things To Them.

Men Are But Children Of A Larger Growth, Our Appetites As Apt To Change As Theirs, And Full As Craving Too, And Full As Vain.
