[A Man In Trouble Laments That He Did Not Listen To His Teachers, And Thus He Finds Himself In A Sad State, Utter Ruin. A Candid Admission Of A Blunder Is Refreshing And Not Often Heard In Human Affairs. It Is The Saint Alone Who Is Large-minded Enough To Think And Speak In This Way. This Is Part Of His Authenticity.The Person Who Is Swift To Hear And Slow To Respond Is A Stranger To An All-knowing Illuminism. He Believes That Others, Too, Have Some Truth, And He Is Willing To Be Instructed By Them. He Is Ready For The Mind Of God.]

Quotes About Having Miscarriages

"They will say that I, having no literary skill, cannot properly express that which I desire to treat of, but they do not know that my subjects are to be dealt with by experience rather than by words. And [experience] has been the mistress of those who wrote well. And so, as mistress, I will cite her in all cases. Though I may not, like them, be able to quote other authors, I shall rely on that which is much greater and more worthy: on experience, the mistress of their masters." - Author: Leonardo da Vinci

Quotes About Low Wages

"There may be little room for the display of this supreme qualification in the retail book business, but there is room for some. Be enterprising. Get good people about you. Make your shop windows and your shops attractive. The fact that so many young men and women enter the teaching profession shows that there are still some people willing to scrape along on comparatively little money for the pleasure of following an occupation in which they delight. It is as true to-day as it was in Chaucers time that there is a class of men who "gladly learn and gladly teach," and our college trustees and overseers and rich alumni take advantage of this and expect them to live on wages which an expert chauffeur would regard as insufficient. Any bookshop worthy of survival can offer inducements at least as great as the average school or college. Under pleasant conditions you will meet pleasant people, for the most part, whom you can teach and form whom you may learn something." - Author: A. Edward Newton

Quotes About Ruling The School

"Whether white, black, Asian, or Latino, American students rarely arrive at college as habitual readers, which means that few of them have more than a nominal connection to the past. It is absurd to speak, as does the academic left, of classic Western texts dominating and silencing everyone but a ruling elite or white males. The vast majority of white students do not know the intellectual tradition that is allegedly theirs any better than black or brown ones do. They have not read its books, and when they do read them, they may respond well, but they will not respond in the way that the academic left supposes. For there is only one ‘hegemonic discourse in the lives of American undergraduates, and that is the mass media. Most high schools cant begin to compete against a torrent of imagery and sound that makes every moment but the present seem quaint, bloodless, or dead." - Author: David Denby

Quotes About Paracelsians

"After the birth of printing books became widespread. Hence everyone throughout Europe devoted himself to the study of literature... Every year, especially since 1563, the number of writings published in every field is greater than all those produced in the past thousand years. The Paracelsians have created medicine anew and the Copernicans have created astronomy anew. I really believe that at last the world is alive, indeed seething, and that the stimuli of these remarkable conjunctions did not act in vain." - Author: Copernicans

Quotes About Sly Friends

"Dennis had imagined that he and Beth would be one of those couples who never quarreled, that when they werent kissing they would be laughing or lying in each others arms, serenely, deliriously happy.

Quotes About Family Tearing Apart

"On the day Contessa Carolina Fantoni was married, only one other living person knew that she was going blind, and he was not her groom.This was not because she had failed to warn them."I am going blind," she had blurted to her mother, in the welcome dimness of the family coach, her eyes still bright with tears from the searing winter sun. By this time, her peripheral vision was already gone. Carolina could feel her mother take her hand, but she had to turn to see her face. When she did, her mother kissed her, her own eyes full of pity."I have been in love, too," she said, and looked away." - Author: Carey Wallace
