Adlai Stevenson

He who is too busy doing good finds no time to be good.
Rabindranath Tagore

Margaret Fuller

The only thing to do with good advice is pass it on. It is never any use to oneself.
Oscar Wilde

Take care that you never spell a word wrong. Always before you write a word, consider how it is spelled, and, if you do not remember, turn to a dictionary. It produces great praise to a lady to spell well.
Thomas Jefferson

Dying is a very dull, dreary affair. And my advice to you is to have nothing whatever to do with it.
W. Somerset Maugham

Always do right--this will gratify some and astonish the rest.
Mark Twain
