- Robert E. Lee

in the dirt once or twice.
Up again, you shall never be so afraid of a tumble.

Books constitute capital.

It is not, then, an article of mere consumption

setting out in life, it is their only capital.
- Thomas Jefferson

Training - training is everything; training is all there is to a person.
We speak of nature; it is folly; there is no such thing as nature;
what we call by that misleading name is merely heredity and training.
We have no thoughts of our own, no opinions of our own;
they are transmitted to us, trained into us.
All that is original in us, and therefore fairly creditable
or discreditable to us, can be covered up and hidden
by the point of a cambric needle, all the rest being atoms
contributed by, and inherited from, a procession of ancestors
that stretches back a billion years to the Adam-clam
or grasshopper or monkey from whom our race has been
so tediously and ostentatiously and unprofitably developed.
And as for me, all that I think about in this plodding sad pilgrimage,
this pathetic drift between the eternities,
is to look out and humbly live a pure and high and blameless life,
and save that one microscopic atom in me that is truly me:
the rest may land in Sheol and welcome for all I care.
- Mark Twain in A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court

Live so that when your children think of fairness,
caring and integrity, they think of you.
- H. Jackson Brown, Jr.

only justice, fairness, consideration and cooperation
can finally lead men to the dawn of eternal peace.
