QUOTING quoting all the time.

Ralph Waldo Emerson:

"There is a time in every man's education when he arrives at the conviction that envy is ignorance; that imitations is suicide; that he must take himself for better or worse as his portion; that though the wide universe is full of good, no kernel of nourishing corn can come to him but through his toil bestowed on that plot of ground which is given to him to till."

Louisa May Alcott

"My father taught in the wise way which unfolds what lies in the child's nature, as a flower blooms, rather than crammed it, like a Strasbourg goose, with more than it could digest."
