One of my recent favorite quotes:

Do not hover always on the surface of things, nor take up suddenly, with mere appearances; but penetrate into the depth of matters, as far as your time and circumstances allow, especially in those things which relate to your profession.

- Isaac Watts (1674 – 1748), English hymn writer, theologian and logician


Quote for the Day: Press On

“Press on: nothing in the world can take the place of perseverance. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent.”

- Calvin Coolidge


Quotes for the day (4-27-09)

The soundest argument will produce no more conviction in an empty head than the most superficial declamation; as a feather and a guinea fall with equal velocity in a vacuum.

-Charles Caleb Colton, author and clergyman (1780-1832)


Brevity is the soul of wit.

- from Shakespeare’s Hamlet, 1603
