Try to know everything of something and something of everything.
What you permit, you promote.
Be like a postage stamp- stick to one thing until you get there!
No one cares how much you know until they know you care.
Accept that some days you are the pidgeon , and some days you're the statue.
—Roger C. Anderson in the Rotarian
Life is mostly froth and bubble,
Two things stand like stone,
Kindness in another's trouble,
Courage in your own.
—From Ye Weary Wayfarer, by Australian poet Adam Lindsay Gordan, pub. 1867
In three words I can sum up everything I've learned about life: It goes on.
Why should we be in such desperate haste to succeed, and in such desperate enterprises? If a man does not keep pace with his companions, perhaps it is because he hears a different drummer.
—Henry David Thoreau
What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us.
—Ralph Waldo Emerson, 1803–1882
Procrastination is the thief of time.
—Edward Young, 1684–1785
