A Quote by E. James (Jim) Rohn on borrowing, ignorance, and truth

Don't be afraid to borrow if someone else has said it well. Winston Churchill said, The truth is incontrovertible. Malice may attack it and ignorance may deride it, but in the end, there it is. That's so well said. You could stay up all night and not think of that.

Jim Rohn

We don't just *borrow* words; on occasion, English has pursued other languages down alleyways to beat them unconscious and rifle their pockets for new vocabulary.

A Quote by Henry David Thoreau on borrowing, danger, evil, fate, horses, life, and trouble

I saw a delicate flower had grown up two feet high between the horses' feet and the wheel trach. An inch more to the right or left had sealed its fate, or an inch higher. Yet it lived and flourished, and never knew the danger it incurred. It did not borrow trouble, nor invite an evil fate by apprehending it.

A Quote by Ella Wheeler Wilcox on borrowing, earth, laughter, trouble, and world

Laugh and the world laughs with you;
Weep, and you weep alone;
For the sad old earth must borrow its mirth,
But has trouble enough of its own.

A Quote by Elizabeth Barrett Browning on bitterness, borrowing, faith, foolishness, god, nature, needs, preachers, schools, and sorrow

There is no God," the foolish saith, But none, "There is no sorrow." And nature oft the cry of faith In bitter need will borrow: Eyes which the preacher could not school, By wayside graves are raised; And lips say, "God be pitiful," Who ne'er said, "God be praised."

Elizabeth Browning (1806 - 1861)
