Jacob A. Riis
“When nothing seems to help, I go and look at a stonecutter
hammering away at his rock, perhaps a hundred times without as
much as a crack showing in it. Yet at the hundred and first
blow it will split in two, and I know it was not that last
blow that did it, but all that had gone before.”
Jacob A. Riis

Sigmund Freud
“One day, in retrospect, the years of struggle will strike you as the most beautiful.”
Sigmund Freud

Adam Smith
“It is not from the benevolence of the butcher, the brewer, or the baker that we expect our dinner, but from their regard to their own self-interest. We address ourselves not to their humanity but to their self-love, and never talk to them of our own necessities, but of their advantages”
Adam Smith, An Inquiry into the Nature & Causes of the Wealth of Nations, Vol 1

Orson Scott Card
“This is how humans are: We question all our beliefs, except for the ones that we really believe in, and those we never think to question.”
Orson Scott Card, Speaker for the Dead

“No man ever steps in the same river twice, for it's not the same river and he's not the same man.”
