Memory is not wisdom; idiots can by rote repeat volumes. Yet what is wisdom without memory?
Never give up! It is wiser and better Always to hope, than once to despair. Fling off the load of Doubt's cankering fetter, And break the dark spell of tyrannical care.
Naples sitteth by the sea, keystone of an arch of azure, Crowned by consenting nations peerless queen of gayety: She laugheth at the wrath of Ocean, she mocketh the fury of Vesuvius, She spurneth disease, and misery, and famine, that crowd her sunny streets.
Well-timed silence hath more eloquence than speech.
Clamorous pauperism feasteth While honest Labor, pining, hideth his sharp ribs.
He who does not tire, tires adversity.
