Catherine The Great Quotes

"One cannot always know what children are thinking. Children are hard to understand, especially when careful training has accustomed them to obedience, and experience has made them cautious in their conversation with their teachers.

Look at your room here. I can see in the twinkling of an eye, that its badly lit. You have only got one window - you ought to have two. Is it necessary to be a practical builder to discover that? Absurd! Are you satisfied now? No! Take another illustration. Whats this printed paper, here, on the chimney-piece? Assessed Taxes. Ha! Assessed Taxes will do.

Quotes About Your Mouth Getting You In Trouble

"With us the inner nature accords with the outer expectation. The body follows the mind, and the mind seeks the soul, which it strives toward but has not yet won. With you it is otherwise. The mind follows the body in pursuit of the soul you have been told you already have. Because you cannot find it, you assume you have lost it somewhere in your past, and this keeps you from achieving it in your future." - Author: Sheri S. Tepper
