Why are you unhappy?Because 99.9 per centOf everything you think,And of everything you do,Is for yourself —And there isn't one.
Ane bow that is ay bent Worthis ay unsmart and dullis on the string; Sa dois the mynd that is ay diligent In ernistfull thochtis and in studying.Robert Henryson
De dois ff se compo? e Esta cidade a meu ver: Um furtar, outro foder. Of two f's, as I see it, is this city composed: one fraud, the other fornication.
Je ne dois qu'à moi seul toute ma renommée.
Je n'ai rien vaillant; je dois beaucoup; je donne le reste aux pauvres.françois rabelais
And the difficultest job a man can do,Is to come it brave and meek with thirty bob a week,And feel that that's the proper thing for you.It's a naked child against a hungry wolf;It's playing bowls upon a splitting wreck;It's walking on a string across a gulfWith millstones fore-and-aft about your neck;But the thing is daily done by many and many a one.And we fall, face forward, fighting, on the deck.john davidson
