“All human actions have one or more of these seven causes: chance, nature, compulsions, habit, reason, passion and desire.” -Aristotle "Experience is the hardest kind of teacher. It gives you the test first and the lesson afterward." "A man who works with his hands is a laborer; a man who works with his hands and his brain is a craftsman; but a man who works with his hands and his brain and his heart is an artist." -Louis Nizer "I passionately hate the idea of being with it, I think an artist has always to be out of step with his time." -Orson Welles "Simplicity is the ultimate form of sophistication." -Leonardo da Vinci "What we see depends mainly on what we look for." -John Lubbock "Gdy się człowiek spieszy, to się diabeł cieszy." - Polish proverb "The world is a book, and those who do not travel read only a page." -St. Augustine "Lecz zaklinam — niech żywi nie tracą nadziei I przed narodem niosą oświaty kaganiec; A kiedy trzeba, na śmierć idą po kolei, Jak kamienie przez Boga rzucane na szaniec!" "The man...who strives for the utmost luxury in everything, imagining this is the sign of magnificence; who acts as if the world were too small for him seems deplorably wanting in intelligence." -Essays in idleness: the Tsurezuregusa of Kenkō "Great minds discuss ideas; Average minds discuss events; Small minds discuss people." -Eleanor Roosevelt
