Sometimes I’ve believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast.
– Lewis Carroll

Books are portable pieces of thought.

A mother should give her children an
abundance of enthusiasm so that after they have lost all they are sure
to lose in mixing with the world, enough may still remain to prompt and
support them through great actions.
– Julius C. Hare

The eye sees only what the mind is prepared to comprehend.

enough to discover the truth than to find one intrepid enough, in the
face of opposition, to stand up for it.

You have it easily in your power to
increase the sum total of this world’s happiness now.  How? 
By giving a few words of sincere appreciation to someone who is lonely
or discouraged.  Perhaps you will forget tomorrow the kind words
you say today, but the recipient may cherish them
over a lifetime.
– Dale Carnegie (1888-1955)

I bargained with life for a penny
And life would pay no more,
However I begged at evening
When I counted my scanty store.

For life is a just employer,
Giving you what you ask,
But once you have set the wages,
Why, you must bear the task.

I worked for a menial’s hire,
Only to learn, dismayed,
That any wage I had asked of life,
Life would have willingly paid.
– Robert Burns
