“All that is gold does not glitter,
Not all those who wander are lost.
The old that is strong does not wither,
Deep roots are not reached by frost.”
— J. R. R. Tolkien “Lord of the Rings”
Money brings some happiness. But after a certain point, it just brings more money.
— Neil Simon
The smallest good deed is better than the grandest good intention.
If you would not be forgotten as soon as you are dead, either write things worth reading or do things worth writing.
— Benjamin Franklin
Where the mind is without fear and the head held high;
Where knowledge is free;
Where the world has not been broken up into fragments by narrow domestic walls;
Where words come out from the depth of truth;
Where tireless striving stretches its arms towards perfection;
Where the clear stream of reason has not lost its way into the dreary desert sand of dead habit;
Where the mind is led forward by Thee into ever-widening thought and action;
Into that heaven of freedom, my Father, let my country awake.
