Gentlemen, You Are Now About To Embark On A Course Of Studies Which Will Occupy You For Two Years. Together, They Form A Noble Adventure. But I Would Like To Remind You Of An Important Point. Nothing That You Will Learn In The Course Of Your Studies Will Be Of The Slightest Possible Use To You In After Life, Save Only This, That If You Work Hard And Intelligently You Should Be Able To Detect When A Man Is Talking Rot, And That, In My View, Is The Main, If Not The Sole, Purpose Of Education.
~ John Alexander Smith, Speech to Oxford University students, 1914
Do Your Work Not Just Your Work And No More, But A Little More For The Lavishings Sake--that Little More Which Is Worth All The Rest.

~ Ralph Waldo Emerson
When You See What Some Women Marry, You Realize How They Must Hate To Work For A Living.

Doubtless Criticism Was Originally Benignant, Pointing Out The Beauties Of A Work Rather That Its Defects. The Passions Of Men Have Made It Malignant, As A Bad Heart Of Procrustes Turned The Bed, The Symbol Of Repose, Into An Instrument Of Torture.
~ Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
Every Artist Wants His Work To Be Permanent. But What Is The Aswan Dam Covered Some Of The Greatest Art In The World. Venice Is Sinking. Great Books And Pictures Were Lost In The Florence Floods. In The Meantime We Still Enjoy Butterflies.
~ Romare Beardon
