A mind grows by what it feeds on.
Calmness is the cradle of power.
God gives every bird its food, but He does not throw it into its nest.
Ideals are the worlds masters.
Joys divided are increased.
Nature is the master of talents; genius is the master of nature.
Nothing so obstinately stands in the way of all sorts of progress as pride of opinion. While nothing is so foolish and baseless.
One thing at a time, all things in succession. That which grows fast withers as rapidly; and that which grows slow endures.
Responsibility walks hand in hand with capacity and power.
Scholarship except by accident is never the measure of a person's power.
The choicest thing this world has for a man is affection.
The soul, like the body, lives by what it feeds on.
The temple of art is built in words.
There is no royal road to anything, one thing at a time, all things in succession. That which grows fast, withers as rapidly. That which grows slowly, endures.
"Work and wait", "work and wait" is what God says to us in creation.
