- First say to yourself what you would be;
and then do what you have to do. -Dost you love life?
Then do not squander time,
for that is the stuff life is made of.- The great blessing of mankind are within us and within our reach; but we shut our eyes, and like people in the dark, we fall foul upon the very thing we search for, without finding it. The surest way to corrupt a youth is to instruct them to hold in higher esteem those who think alike than those who think differently. Often we don’t even realise who were meant to be because we’re so busy trying to live out someone else’s ideas. But other people and their opinions hold no power in defining your destiny.
