It appears to me impossible that I should cease to exist or that this active restless spirit equally alive to joy and sorrow should be only organized dust -- ready to fly abroad the moment the spring snaps or the spark goes out which kept it together. Surely something resides in this heart that is not perishable -- and life is more than a dream.
    ~ Mary Wollstonecraft (1759-1797)
Search for the truth is the noblest occupation of man; its publication is a duty.
    ~ Madame de Stael (April 22, 1766 - July 14, 1817)
Why not seize the pleasure at once? How often is happiness destroyed by preparation, foolish preparation!
    ~ Jane Austen (1775-1817)
Reckon the days in which you have not been angry. I used to be angry every day; now every other day; then every third and fourth day; and if you miss it so long as thirty days, offer a sacrifice of thanksgiving to God.
    ~ Epictetus - How the Semblances of Things Are to Be Combated. Chap. Xviii.  (A.D. C.55 - c.135) - Stoic Philosopher
