Famous quotes containing the words rudolph, walker and/or foundation:

    Sometimes it takes years to really grasp what has happened to your life. What do you do after you are world-famous and nineteen or twenty and you have sat with prime ministers, kings and queens, the Pope? What do you do after that? Do you go back home and take a job? What do you do to keep your sanity? You come back to the real world.
    —Wilma Rudolph (1940–1994)

    Old Molly Means was a hag and a witch;
    Chile of the devil, the dark, and sitch.
    —Margaret Abigail Walker (b. 1915)

    The most excellent and divine counsel, the best and most profitable advertisement of all others, but the least practised, is to study and learn how to know ourselves. This is the foundation of wisdom and the highway to whatever is good.... God, Nature, the wise, the world, preach man, exhort him both by word and deed to the study of himself.
    Pierre Charron (1541–1603)
