Zitat des Tages von Thomas Wentworth Higginson:
When a thought takes one's breath away, a grammar lesson seems an impertinence.
Originality is simply a pair of fresh eyes.
Fields are won by those who believe in the winning.
There is no defense against adverse fortune which is so effectual as an habitual sense of humor.
The test of an author is not to be found merely in the number of his phrases that pass current in the corner of newspapers... but in the number of passages that have really taken root in younger minds.
Great men are rarely isolated mountain peaks; they are the summits of ranges.
There is a noble and a base side to every history.
