A Quote by Publius Cornelius Tacitus on anger, expectation, fear, freedom, habits, sincerity, truth, and wonder

Fear is not in the habit of speaking truth; when perfect sincerity is expected, perfect freedom must be allowed; nor has anyone who is apt to be angry when he hears the truth any cause to wonder that he does not hear it.

A Quote by Peter Hunt on beauty, beginning, death, enthusiasm, justice, purpose, sincerity, and time

. . . Unhesitatingly take whatever material is readily at hand, and with enthusiasm and sincerity make something for a utilitarian purpose or just for the beauty of it. If at the very beginning you realize you aren't going to have a grand time making it, just stop right there, because just as sure as death the result will be a tired, dreary affair.
