Time alone reveals the just man; but you might discern a bad man in a single day.
Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Sophocles

Beware when the great God lets loose a thinker on this planet. Then all things are at risk. It is as when a conflagration has broken out in a great city, and no man knows what is safe, or where it will end. There is not a piece of science, but its flank may be turned to-morrow; there is not any literary reputation, not the so-called eternal names of fame, that may not be revised and condemned. The very hopes of man, the thoughts of his heart, the religion of nations, the manners and morals of mankind, are all at the mercy of a new generalization. Generalization is always a new influx of the divinity into the mind. Hence the thrill that attends it.

Originality is not seen in single words or even sentences. Originality is the sum total of a man's thinking or his writing.

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Abraham Lincoln

Who kills a man kills a reasonable creature, God's image, but thee who destroys a good book, kills reason its self.

All things will be produced in superior quantity and quality, and with greater ease, when each man works at a single occupation, in accordance with his natural gifts, and at the right moment, without meddling with anything else.
