Perhaps the most valuable result of all education is the ability to make
yourself do the thing you have to do, when it ought to be done, whether
you like it or not; it is the first lesson that ought to be learned; and however
early a man's training begins, it is probably the last lesson that he learns
~Thomas H. Huxley
Life does not consist mainly, or even largely, of facts and happenings.
It consists mainly of the storm of thought that is forever flowing
through ones head.
We could all learn a lot from crayons: some are sharp, some are pretty,
some are dull, some have weird names, and all are different colors...but
they all have to learn to live in the same box.
If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together.
