Edith Hamilton
“The truth to reconcile these truths he found in the experience of men, which the men of his generation must have realized far beyond others, that pain and error have their purpose and their use: they are steps of the ladder of knowledge: 'God, whose law it is that he who learns must suffer. And even in our sleep pain that cannot forget, falls drop by drop upon the heart, and in our own despite, against our will, comes wisdom to us by the awful grace of God.' (Aeschylus, Agamemnon)”
Edith Hamilton, The Greek Way

Abraham Lincoln
“Lincoln characterized Stephen Douglas's argument as "a specious and fantastic arrangement of words, by which a man can prove a horse chestnut to be a chestnut horse.”
Abraham Lincoln

Mary Oliver
“No poet ever wrote a poem to dishonor life, to compromise high ideals, to scorn religious views, to demean hope or gratitude, to argue against tenderness, to place rancor before love, or to praise littleness of soul. Not one. Not ever.”
Mary Oliver, Rules for the Dance: A Handbook for Writing and Reading Metrical Verse

H. Jackson Brown Jr.
“When starting out, don’t worry about not having enough money. Limited funds are a blessing, not a curse. Nothing encourages creative thinking in quite the same way.”
H. Jackson Brown

“He that is slow to anger is better than the mighty; and he that ruleth his spirit than he that taketh a city. Proverbs 16:32”
