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

22nd November

Explaining how powered flight works...

"The airplane stays up because it doesn't have the time to fall."

Orville Wright

What you don't see with your eyes, don't witness with your mouth.

Proverb

Have patience with all things, but chiefly have patience with yourself. Do not lose courage in considering your own imperfections, but instantly set about remedying them - every day begin the task anew.

Saint Francis de Sales (1567-1622)

If you have an important point to make, don't try to be subtle or clever. Use a pile driver. Hit the point once. Then come back and hit it again. Then hit it a third time - a tremendous whack.

Sir Winston Churchill

Libraries are reservoirs of strength, grace and wit, reminders of order, calm and continuity, lakes of mental energy, neither warm nor cold, light nor dark. The pleasure they give is steady, unorgastic, reliable, deep and long-lasting.

Dr Germaine Greer
