“The best thing for being sad,” replied Merlyn, beginning to puff and blow, “is to learn something. That is the only thing that never fails. You may grow old and trembling in your anatomies, you may lie awake at night listening to the disorder of your veins, you may miss your only love, you may see the world about you devastated by evil lunatics, or know your honour trampled in the sewers of baser minds. There is only one thing for it then–to learn.”

– T. H. White, The Once and Future King, 1939

“The true perfection of man lies, not in what man has, but in what man is. Nothing should be able to harm a man but himself.  Nothing should be able to rob a man at all.  What a man really has is what is in him. What is outside of him should be a matter of no importance.”

– Oscar Wilde   (1856-1900)
