Jewels for the Week 1/05/14 to 1/10/14:

“Independent, self-reliant people are a counter-productive anachronism to the society of the future. Into the future, people will be defined by their associations not by their own individual accomplishments. In such a world people who read too well, or too early, are dangerous because they become privately empowered: they know too much, and know how to find out what they don’t know by themselves, without consulting experts.” ~ John Dewey (educational and social reformer) in 1896

“Of all disciplines, to be an honest man is the master craft…” ~ Chinese Proverb

“When you’re in second place, attack the leader. When you’re in first place, attack yourself.” ~ anonymous (posted to my Facebook Fanpage 1/2/14)

“Books are sacred to free men for very good reasons…” ~ Kurt Vonnegut, American writer

“A man’s character is his guardian divinity.” ~ Heraclitus (he came before Socrates)

“Brevity is the soul of wit.” ~ Shakespeare in Hamlet (Act 2, Scene 2)

“There is no cosmetic for beauty like happiness.” ~ Maria Mitchell, first American female astronomer.
