  • Even if it is true, that a little learning is a dangerous thing; a little learning is an absolute prerequisite on the way to much learning.


  • Genius may be nothing more than a form of madness that has great utility.


  • One thing that should be remembered is that once one possesses anything, rarely does it seem more valuable than before.


  • When we are inside of a house, we canít tell what it looks like from the outside; likewise, we must view our lives from the inside, never being sure of what we are like on the outside; this is because there is no mirror to life except in how others see us.


  • When we discover small things bothering us, it means that we have big problems within.

  • A disagreement with another can be the fertilizer that offers growth; our agreement with another offers only stagnation.


  • A baby is nurtured by its mother until weaned; after that, the child is nurtured by others so as to mature with the beliefs of the many.
