He whose wisdom exceeds his works, to what may he be likened? To a tree whose branches are numerous but whose roots are few. The wind comes along and uproots it and sweeps it down.
The Talmud quotes
The world is full of willing people; some willing to work, the rest willing to let them.
Robert Frost quotes
Often we can help each other most by leaving each other alone; at other times we need the hand-grasp and the word of cheer.
Elbert Hubbard quotes
Plans are only good intentions unless they immediately degenerate into hard work.
Peter F. Drucker quotes
One's philosophy is not best expressed in words; it is expressed in the choices one makes ... and the choices we make are ultimately our responsibility.
Eleanor Roosevelt quotes
Establishing lasting peace is the work of education; all politics can do is keep us out of war.
Maria Montessori quotes
I believe that we are solely responsible for our choices, and we have to accept the consequences of every deed, word, and thought throughout our lifetime.
Elisabeth Kubler-Ross quotes
Every burned book or house enlightens the world; every suppressed or expunged word reverberates through the earth from side to side
Ralph Waldo Emerson quotes

Never regard study as a duty, but as the enviable opportunity to learn to know the liberating influence of beauty in the realm of the spirit for your own personal joy and to the profit of the community to which your later work belongs.
Albert Einstein quotes
