Originality is a thing we constantly clamour for, and constantly quarrel with.
No man sees far, the most see no farther than their noses.
A man's perfection is his work.
A well-written life is almost as rare as a well-spent one.
Give me a man who sings at his work.

A witty statesman said, you might prove anything by figures.
It is a mathematical fact that the casting of this pebble from my hand alters the centre of gravity of the universe.
