Amazing Quotations Page 5

Nothing tends in this respect so
much to enlarge the mind as traveling, i. e., making a
visit to other towns, cities, or countries, besides those in
which we were born and educated; and where our condition
of life does not grant us this privilege, we must
endeavor to supply the want of it by books.
--Isaac Watts, The Improvement of the Mind.

Talking over the things which you have read with
your companions on the first proper opportunity you
have for it, is a most useful manner of review or repetition,
in order to fix them upon the mind.
--Isaac Watts, The Improvement of the Mind.

Knowledge is of two kinds. We know a subject ourselves, or we know where we can find
information upon it.
--James Boswell

In reading authors, when you find
Bright passages, that strike your mind,
And which, perhaps, you may have reason
To think on, at another season,
Be not contented with the sight,
But take them down in black and white;
Such a respect is wisely shown,
As makes another's sense one's own.
--Goerge Gordon Byron

Early knowledge is very valuable capital with which to set forth in life. It gives one an advantageous start. If
the possession of knowledge has a given value at fifty, it has a much greater value at twenty-five; for there is
the use of it for twenty-five of the most important years of your life; and it is worth more than a hundred per
cent interest. Indeed, who can estimate the interest of knowledge? Its price is above rubies.
--Edward Winslow

Exercise delivers oxygen and nutrients to your tissues. In fact, regular exercise helps your entire cardiovascular system — the circulation of blood through your heart and blood vessels — work more efficiently.
