Today is the oldest you’ve ever been, and the youngest you’ll ever be again.
More quotes by Eleanor Roosevelt
People grow through experience if they meet life honestly and courageously. This is how character is built.
Every woman wants to be first to someone sometime in her life and that desire is the explanation for many strange things women do.

The perch swallows the grub-worm, the pickerel swallows the perch, and the fisherman swallows the pickerel; and so all the chinks in the scale of being are filled.

All censorships exist to prevent anyone from challenging current conceptions and existing institutions. All progress is initiated by challenging current conceptions, and executed by supplanting existing institutions. Consequently, the first condition of progress is the removal of censorship.
Is not a patron, my lord, one who looks with unconcern on a man struggling for life in the water, and, when he has reached ground, encumbers him with help?

Buildings have need of a good Foundation, that lie so much exposed to the Weather.
