The beginning of an acquaintance whether with persons or things is to get a definite outline of our ignorance.
More quotes by George Eliot
Science is properly more scrupulous than dogma. Dogma gives a charter to mistake, but the very breath of science is a contest with mistake, and must keep the conscience alive.
More quotes about Wisdom
The biggest lesson I’ve learned is to prepare for the long haul, the rise and fall, and let neither define your sense of self.
Don’t learn to do, but learn in doing. Let your falls not be on a prepared ground, but let them be bona fide falls in the rough and tumble of the world.
Drive a nail home and clinch it so faithfully that you can wake up in the night and think of your work with satisfaction,a work at which you would not be ashamed to invoke the Muse.
