Perfection

Pleasure in the job puts perfection in the work.

Aristotle

Pleasure

Edith Hamilton

Prepare

A good education is not so much one which prepares a man to succeed in the world, as one which enables him to sustain a failure.

Bernard Iddings Bell Chaplain, University of Chicago

Press on

Nothing in the world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan, 'Press on,' has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race.

Calvin Coolidge

Prosperity

If I were asked ... to what the singular prosperity and growing strength of Americans ought mainly to be attributed, I should reply: To the superiority of their women.

Alexis de Tocqueville

Proverb

If you are planning for a year, sow rice; if you are planning for a decade, plant trees; if you are planning for a lifetime, educate people.

Chinese proverb

Education is the best provision for old age.

Aristotle
