"Never despair, but if you do, work on in despair."
"All that is required for evil to prevail is for good men to do nothing."

Top 5 quotes from Miscellaneous

"Man has almost constant occasion for the help of his brethren, and it is in vain for him to expect it from their benevolence only."

By preferring the support of domestic to that of foreign industry he intends only his own security; and by directing that industry in such a manner as its produce may be of the greatest value, he intends only his own gain, and he is in this, as in many other cases, led by an invisible hand to promote an end which was no part of his intention."
"My second favorite household chore is ironing. My first being hitting my head on the top bunk bed until I faint."
