Quote by Miguel de Cervantes
The man who is prepared has his battle half fought.
This quote emphasizes the importance of preparation in achieving success. By being prepared in advance, an individual gains a significant advantage in any situation or endeavor. It suggests that half the battle of achieving a goal or winning a battle lies in being prepared beforehand. Whether it is studying for an exam, planning for a project, or strategizing for a competition, being prepared sets the stage for success by providing a solid foundation of knowledge, skills, and confidence. It reminds us that success often comes to those who have put in the effort and groundwork necessary for achievement.

This one I suggest we all forget.I'll own up: I think it is a dream. Miss Verena. But a man who doesn't dream is like a man who doesn't sweat: he stores up a lot of poison.
