“If you're reading this...
Congratulations, you're alive.
If that's not something to smile about,
then I don't know what is.”
― Chad Sugg, Monsters Under Your Head
“Failure is the condiment that gives success its flavor.”
― Truman Capote
There is this difference between happiness and wisdom: he that thinks himself the happiest man is really so; but he that thinks himself the wisest is generally the greatest fool.
These are the signs of a wise man: to reprove nobody, to praise nobody, to blame nobody, nor even to speak of himself or his own merits.
He is a wise man who does not grieve for the things which he has not, but rejoices for those which he has.
True wisdom is to know what is best worth knowing, and to do what is best worth doing.
By wisdom wealth is won; but riches purchased wisdom yet for none.
The wisest man is generally he who thinks himself the least so.
Wise men say nothing in dangerous times.
The firmest friendships have been formed in mutual adversity, as iron is most strongly united by the fiercest flame.

Each excellent thing, once well learned,
serves for a measure of all other knowledge.
Sir P. Sidney.
Observation more than books,
experience rather than persons,
are the prime educators.
A. Bronson Alcott.
Education commences at the mother’s knee,
and every word spoken within the hearing of
little children tends toward the formation of character.
Let parents bear this ever in mind.

Little deeds are like little seeds,
they grow to flowers or to weeds.
Daniel D. Palmer
A man's children and his garden both reflect the amount of
weeding done during the growing season.
Even the richest soil, if left
uncultivated will produce the
