“I have scarcely felt greater pain in my life than on learning yesterday from Bobs letter, that you had failed to enter Harvard University. And yet there is very little in it, if you will allow no feeling of discouragement to seize, and prey upon you.”
—Abraham Lincoln (18091865)
“The work of adult life is not easy. As in childhood, each step presents not only new tasks of development but requires a letting go of the techniques that worked before. With each passage some magic must be given up, some cherished illusion of safety and comfortably familiar sense of self must be cast off, to allow for the greater expansion of our distinctiveness.”
—Gail Sheehy (20th century)
“To a small man every greater is an exaggeration.”
—Henry David Thoreau (18171862)
