“We disparage reason.
But all the time its what were most concerned with.
Theres will as motor and theres will as brakes.
Reason is, I suppose, the steering gear.”
—Robert Frost (18741963)
“Building up a familys fortune is like moving earth with a needle, but losing a familys fortune can be as swift as a boat rushing downstream with the current.”
