September 17

I AM owner of the sphere,
Of the seven stars and the solar year,
Of Caesar’s hand, and Plato’s brain,
Of Lord Christ’s heart, and Shakespeare’s strain.
Ralph Waldo Emerson


I MAKE not therefore my head a grave, but a treasure of knowledge; I intend no Monopoly, but a community, in learning; I study not for my own sake only, but for theirs that study not for themselves; I envy no man that knows more than myself, but pity them that know less.
Sir Thomas Browne


WE should always keep open and free a corner of our head in which to make room for the opinions of our friends. Let us have heart and head hospitality.
Joseph Joubert

WE must never judge the quality of a teaching by the quality of the teacher, or allow the spots to shut out the sun.
Lord Acton
