I spent the entire month engaged in my studies
Completed my thesis and hung out with my intellectual buddies
I wrote a couple of notes to ease the tension from my stresses
And I thought to compile a few quotes from my famous predecessors
Drink it deep or touch not the Pyrenean springs, a little knowledge is a dangerous thing
- Alexander Pope
Knowledge makes good men better and bad men worse
Problems cannot be solved with the same level of intelligence that created them
- Albert Einstein
The mark of an immature man is that he wants to die nobly for a cause, while the mark of a mature man is that he wants to live humbly for one
I really look with commiseration over the great body of my fellow citizens who, 'reading newspapers', live and die in the belief that they have known something of what has been passing in their times.
- Thomas Jefferson
To avoid all mistake in the conduct of a great enterprise is beyond a man's powers...But, when a mistake has once been made, to use his reverses as lessons for the future is part of a brave and sensible man
Worry is wasting today's time to clutter up tomorrow's opportunity with yesterday's troubles
Every accomplishment great or small starts with a decision
Laziness travels slowly, poverty soon overtakes it
Whenever you fall, pick something up
A mistake riddled life is more interesting, much more richer and more stimulating than the life that never risks or taken a stand on anything.
Of all the things you where, a smile is the most important one
You'll always have everything you want in life, If you'll help enough other people get what they want
- Zig Zaglar
Utter commotion in the blocks, to make some hay or to sling some rocks. Either way, we must feed our flocks. Time is running out, as the clock tick tocks, to each of us....money mocks!
- El Nnanna
