Quotes

A man who dares to waste one hour of time has not discovered the value of life.

It is not the strongest of the species that survive, nor the most intelligent, but the one most responsive to change.

We must, however, acknowledge, as it seems to me, that man with all his noble qualities... still bears in his bodily frame the indelible stamp of his lowly origin
