A Quote by Truman Capote on children, earth, existence, friendship, losing, memory, schools, seasons, water, and world

The true beloveds of this world are in their lover's eyes lilacs opening, ship lights, school bells, a landscape, remembered conversations, friends, a child's Sunday, lost voices, one's favorite suit, autumn and all seasons, memory, yes, it being the earth and water of existence, memory.

A Quote by Thomas J. Watson on business, company, education, graduation, knowledge, men, men and women, money, schools, and women

We are willing to spend any reasonable amount of money on education in our organization, because we have a group of men and women in our business who are constantly seeking knowledge, knowing that is the way to make themselves more valuable to the company and, automatically, more valuable to themselves. We are working out a plan that is going to take in everybody in the organization. We are going to have post graduate schools for our men in the field, and post graduate schools for our executives-and many of them.

Thomas Watson (1874 - 1956)

A Quote by Theodore Parker on achievement, army, bravery, duty, home, justice, mankind, schools, skill, strength, victory, welfare, and world

Let us do our duty in our shop or our kitchen, in the market, the street, the office, the school, the home, just as faithfully as if we stood in the front rank of some great battle, and knew that victory for mankind depended on our bravery, strength, and skill. When we do that, the humblest of us will be serving in that great army which achieves the welfare of the world.

Theodore Parker (1810 - 1860)
