"It seems to me now, if I was to find Father at home to-night, I should behave different; but there's no knowing--perhaps nothing 'ud be a lesson to us if it didn't come too late." ~ Adam Bede by George Eliot People who love downy peaches are apt not to think of the stone, and sometimes jar their teeth terribly against it. ~ Adam Bede by George Eliot "The natur o' things doesn't change, though it seems as if one's own life was nothing but change. The square o' four is sixteen, and you must lengthen your lever in proportion to your weight, is as true when a man's miserable as when he's happy; and the best o' working is, it gives you a grip hold o' things outside your own lot." ~ Adam Bede by George Eliot Leverage is everything,--was what I used to say;--don't begin to pry till you have got the long arm on your side. ~ Elsie Venner by Oliver Wendell Holmes, Sr. Time and tide will wait for no man, saith the adage. But all men have to wait for time and tide. ~ Martin Chuzzlewit by Charles Dickens Cheerfulness, it would appear, is a matter which depends fully as much on the state of things within as on the state of things without and around us. ~ Shirley by Charlotte Bronte To be conscious that you are ignorant is a great step to knowledge. ~ Sybil by Benjamin Disraeli The praise of a fool is incense to the wisest of us. ~ Vivian Grey by Benjamin Disraeli "You will profit by the failure, and will avoid it another time. I have done a similar thing myself, in construction, often. Every failure teaches a man something, if he will learn." ~ Little Dorrit by Charles Dickens For we pay a price for everything we get or take in this world; and although ambitions are well worth having, they are not to be cheaply won, but exact their dues of work and self-denial, anxiety and discouragement. ~ Anne of Green Gables by Lucy Maud Montgomery
