Eleanor Roosevelt, This is My Story

Stella Gibbons, Cold Comfort Farm

Edward de Bono
“The need to be right all the time is the biggest bar to new ideas. It is better to have enough ideas for some of them to be wrong than to be always right by having no ideas at all. ”

Douglas Adams, The Salmon of Doubt: Hitchhiking the Galaxy One Last Time

Albert Camus
“After all manner of professors have done their best for us, the place we are to get knowledge is in books. The true university of these days is a collection of books.”
Albert Camus
