    A new degree of intellectual power seems cheap at any price.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    In considering the ledger equal, understand the greatest gift you have given your parents is the opportunity to raise you. The things a child gets from parents can’t compare to the things a parent gets from raising a child. Only by experiencing this can you understand the degree to which children give meaning to parents’ lives.
    Frank Pittman (20th century)

    I still lack to a considerable degree that naturally superior kind of manner that I would dearly like to possess.
    Heinrich Himmler (1900–1945)
