The world abhors closeness, and all but admires extravagance; yet a slack hand shows weakness, and a tight hand strength.
Sir Thomas Fowell Buxton (1786 - 1845)

The road to success is not to be run upon by seven-leagued boots. Step by step, little by little, bit by bit-that is the way to wealth, that is the way to wisdom, that is the way to glory.
Laziness grows on people; it begins in cobwebs and ends in iron chains. The more one has to do the more he is able to accomplish.
Experience shows that success is due less to ability than to zeal. The winner is he who gives himself to his work, body and soul.
