Learning is not attained by chance, it must be sought for with ardor and attended to with diligence.
Abigail Adams, 1780
Never seem more learned than the people you are with. Wear your learning like a pocket watch and keep it hidden. Do not pull it out to count the hours, but give the time when you are asked.
Lord Chesterfield, (1694-1773)
Learning is not compulsory… neither is survival.
W. Edwards Demming, US business advisor & author (1900 – 1993)
