A teacher who is attempting to teach without inspiring the pupil with a desire to learn is hammering on cold iron.
A human being is not attaining his full heights until he is educated.
Every addition to true knowledge is an addition to human power.
Be ashamed to die until you have won some victory for humanity.
Lost - yesterday, somewhere between sunrise and sunset, two golden hours, each set with sixty diamond minutes. No reward is offered, for they are gone forever.
