A Quote by David Starr Jordan on chance, interest, energy, success, trouble, and work

"I am not much of a mathematician," said the cigarette, "but I can add to a man's nervous troubles, I can subtract from his physical energy, I can multiply his aches and pains, I can divide his mental powers, I take interest from his work, and discount his chances for success."

David Starr Jordan (1851 - 1931)
