    “I’m good enough,” the King said, “only I’m not strong enough. You see, a minute goes by so fearfully quick. You might as well try to stop a Bandersnatch!”
    Lewis Carroll [Charles Lutwidge Dodgson] (1832–1898)

    Poverty is the result of bad adjustment between the soul and its desires.... In the days of great poverty, I did not mind the sensation of hunger.... But ... to be deprived of tooth paste, to brush the teeth without it, was a dreadful thing, a daily discomfort.
    —Alice Foote MacDougall (1867–1945)

    Competition is. In every business, no matter how small or how large, someone is just around the corner forever trying to steal your ideas and build his success out of your imagination, struggling after that which you have toiled endless years to secure, striving to outdo you in each and every way. If such a competitor would work as hard to originate as he does to copy, he would much more quickly gain success.
    —Alice Foote MacDougall (1867–1945)
