THE QUOTES

This is just a post about ten of my favourite quotes and why I love them. The first quote is by none other than one of my favourite poets, W.H. Auden: "A professor is one who talks in someone else's sleep."   This quote is just amazing. Auden compares a lack of knowledge to being [...]

The GREAT

We fail to realise our own greatness because for ourselves we generate mental barriers through attempts to emulate the external.
