Winston S. Churchill
“If you cannot read all your books, at any rate handle, or as it were, fondle them – peer into them, let them fall open where they will, read from the first sentence that arrests the eye, set them back on the shelves with your own hands, arrange them on your own plan so that if you do not know what is in them, you at least know where they are. Let them be your friends; let them at any rate be your acquaintances. If they cannot enter the circle of your life, do not deny them at least a nod of recognition.”
Winston S. Churchill, Painting as a Pastime

“Most people, in fact, will not take the trouble in finding out the truth, but are much more inclined to accept the first story they hear.”
Thucydides, History of the Peloponnesian War

James G. Stavridis
“We seem to have lost our capacity for politeness and for genuine concern about the quality of our interactions in this hectic century.”
James G. Stavridis, The Accidental Admiral: A Sailor Takes Command at NATO

“Men who are capable of real action first make their plans and then go forward without hesitation while their enemies have still not made up their minds.”
Thucydides, History of the Peloponnesian War
