Ponder This...

Perhaps the most valuable result of all education is the ability to make yourself do the thing you have to do, when it ought to be done, whether you like it or not; it is the first lesson that ought to be learned; and however early a man's training begins, it is probably the last lesson that he learns thoroughly. 
- Thomas H. Huxley, 1825-1895

I have always thought the actions of men the best interpreters of their thoughts. 
- John Locke, 1632-1704

I'm very pleased with each advancing year. It stems back to when I was forty. I was a bit upset about reaching that milestone, but an older friend consoled me. 'Don't complain about growing old - many, many people do not have that privilege.' 
- Earl Warren, 1891-1974
