Just as iron rusts from disuse, even so does inaction spoil the intellect.
~ Leonardo da Vinci
“I never met a man so stupid I could not learn something from him.”
We cannot tell the precise moment when friendship is formed. As in filling a vessel drop by drop, there is at last a drop which makes it run over; so in a series of kindnesses there is at last one which makes the heart run over.
“A flower’s appeal is in its contradictions
-so delicate in form yet strong
in fragrance, so small in size
yet big in beauty, so short in
life yet long on effect.”
