Wisdom from the greatest voices of reason who are, or have ever been, in our world

9th February

A critic writes about the gramophone (1956)

Sirs, I have tested your machine. It adds a new terror to life and makes death a long-felt want.

Herbert Beerbolm Tree

Tolerance implies a respect for another person, not because he is wrong or even because he is right, but because he is human.

John Cogley Commonweal

It is not so much the example of others we imitate as the reflection of ourselves in their eyes and the echo of ourselves in their words.

Eric Hoffer

A good education is not so much one which prepares a man to succeed in the world, as one which enables him to sustain a failure.

Bernard Iddings Bell

Don't wait until everything is just right. It will never be perfect. There will always be challenges, obstacles and less than perfect conditions. So what. Get started now. With each step you take, you will grow stronger and stronger, more and more skilled,

Mark Victor Hansen
