True ignorance is not the absence of knowledge, but the refusal to acquire it.
Where men are the most sure and arrogant, they are commonly the most mistaken, and have there given reins to passion, without that proper deliberation and suspense, which can alone secure them from the grossest absurdities.
Indeed, truth draws strength from itself and not from the number of votes in its favor.
If a man does not have an ideal and try to live up to it, then he becomes a mean, base, and sordid creature, no matter how successful.
Oh, how great peace and quietness would he possess who should cut off all vain anxiety and place all his confidence in God.
—Thomas à Kempis
One meets his destiny often in the road he takes to avoid it.
