My Favorite Quotations!

I find great pleasure in reading whatever is good, but it is rather an unlucky matter for me that I often do not get much time. Here’s, however, a short compilation of the quotes I found BEST when I read them first and whenever I try to read them again, they hold their value. Add any of your favorite quotes in the comments which you think I’d like too 🙂

It is the star to every wandering bark,
Whose worth’s unknown, although his height be taken. . .”
