“He was right. Love enfeebled a man. She saw this with Marcus and Drusus. It could possess, enrage, and overcome reason. It could drive vengeance and inspire passion and courage. She smiled as she lit another lamp and set up her handloom. For, unlike a man, love gave a woman power. A night moth had become a patrician’s mistress. The impossible had been made possible.”
Elisabeth Storrs, Call to Juno

“Wisdom is wasted on fools.”
Elisabeth Storrs, Call to Juno

“Until you can rid yourself of sentiment, I don’t think you should stand in judgment of anyone.” “You”
Elisabeth Storrs, Call to Juno

“Genius is one percent inspiration, ninety-nine percent perspiration.”
Thomas A. Edison

“Six mistakes mankind keeps making century after century:
Believing that personal gain is made by crushing others;
Worrying about things that cannot be changed or corrected;
Insisting that a thing is impossible because we cannot accomplish it;
Refusing to set aside trivial preferences;
Neglecting development and refinement of the mind;
Attempting to compel others to believe and live as we do.”
Marcus Tullius Cicero
