The surprises of thought are like those of love: they wear out. But here too you can carry on for a long time doing your conjugal duty.
Don't tell people how to do things, tell them what to do and let them surprise you with their results.
George S. Patton
Death never takes the wise man by surprise, he is always ready to go.
“Everybody keeps telling me how surprised they are with what I've done. But I'm telling you honestly that it doesn't surprise me. I knew I could do it.”
Ralph Waldo Emerson
