If you have great talents, industry will improve them: if you have but moderate abilities, industry will supply their deficiency.
Sir Joshua Reynolds
The real character of a man is found out by his amusements.
Invention strictly speaking, is little more than a new combination of those images which have been previously gathered and deposited in the memory; nothing can come from nothing.
Nothing can be made of nothing; he who has laid up no material can produce no combination.
The mind is but a barren soil; a soil which is soon exhausted, and will produce no crop, or only one, unless it be continually fertilized and enriched with foreign matter.
