The wise man through an excess of wisdom is made a fool.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
Though we travel the world over to find the beautiful, we must carry it with us, or we find it not.
The sum of wisdom is that time is never lost that is devoted to work.
Man is explicable by nothing less than all his history.
We are all wise. The difference between persons is not in wisdom but in art. I knew, in an academical club, a person who always deferred to me; who, seeing my whim for writing, fancied that my experiences had somewhat superior; whilst I saw that his experiences were as good as mine. Give them to me and I would make the same use of them.
The secret of education lies in respecting the pupil.
