Stillness and Torrent

A  L  O  H  A !
"A talent is formed 
in stillness, a
character in the 
world's torrent."

"To think only the best,
to work only for the best,
and to expect only the best. -

- To be just as enthusiastic 
about the success of others
as you are about 
your own worth."
           Christian D. Larson

"I have never known 
any distress that an 
hour of reading 
did not relieve."
           Charles De Montesquieu
