Silence is the sleep that nourishes wisdom.
It is a rough road that leads to the heights of greatness.
Lucius Annaeus Seneca
No one knows what he can do until he tries. Where there is unity there is always victory.
The sum of all sums is eternity.
It is hard to fail, but it is worse never to have tried to succeed.
Slow and steady wins the race.
Courage is the ladder on which all the other virtues mount.
Clare Boothe Luce,
politician, diplomat and writer
“Routine shortens and variety lengthens time, and it is therefore in the power of men to do something to regulate its pace. A life with many landmarks, a life which is much subdivided when those subdivisions are not of the same kind, and when new and diverse interests, impressions, and labours follow each other in swift and distinct successions, seems the most long…”
William Edward Hartpole Lecky, The Map of Life
