Quotes
"The true secret of happiness lies in taking a genuine interest in all the details of daily life."; "The reward of labour is life. Is that not enough?"; "The past is not dead, it is living in us, and will be alive in the future which we are now helping to make."; "It took me years to understand that words are often as important as experience, because words make experience last."; "If you want a golden rule that will fit everything, this is it: Have nothing in your houses that you do not know to be useful or believe to be beautiful.";  …
