represents determinism; the way you play it is free will.
~Jawaharlal Nehru (1889-1964, Indian nationalist, statesman)
2. Don't waste your life in doubts and fears: spend yourself on the work before you, well assured that the right performance of this hour's duties will be the best preparation for the hours or ages that follow it.
~Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803-1882, American poet, essayist)
3. Few things are needed to make a wise man happy; nothing can make a fool content; that is why most men are miserable.
~Francois De La Rochefoucauld (1613-1680, French classical writer)
4. We only think when we are confronted with problems.
~John Dewey (1859-1952, American philosopher, educator)
5. To be uncertain is to be uncomfortable, but to be certain is to be ridiculous.
6. It is not what you are called, but what you answer to.
7. Poverty is not a shame, but the being ashamed of it is.
