Quotes of the meek

There is no security on this earth, there is only opportunity.
           -- General Douglas MacArthur

Know the true value of time; snatch, seize, and enjoy every moment of it. No idleness; no laziness; no procrastination; never put off till tomorrow what you can do today.
           -- Lord Chesterfield

You must have a room, or a certain hour or so a day, where you don't know what was in the newspapers that morning... a place where you can simply experience and bring forth what you are and what you might be.
           -- Joseph Campbell

I seek constantly to improve my manners and graces, for they are the sugar to which all are attracted.
           -- Og Mandino
