A Quote by Bernard Mannes Baruch on adoption, america, belief, clothes, custom, maturity, people, and path

America has never forgotten - and will never forget - the nobler things that brought her into being and that light her path - the path that was entered upon only one hundred and fifty years ago. . . . How young she is! It will be centuries before she will adopt that maturity of custom - the clothing of the grave - that some people believe she is already fitted for.

Bernard Baruch (1870 - 1965)

A Quote by Benjamin Disraeli on belief, confidence, growth, maturity, plants, and time

A Quote by Arthur Schopenhauer on age, children, danger, errors, history, impossibility, judgment, mathematics, maturity, and science

A child under the age of fifteen should confine its attention either to subjects like mathematics, in which errors of judgment are impossible, or to subjects in which they are not very dangerous, like languages, natural science, history, etc.
