Maurice Bishop Quotes (1 quote)
“The test of our progress is not whether we add more to the abundance of those who have much; it is whether we provide enough for those who have too little.”
―Franklin D. Roosevelt
Second Inaugural Address (20 January 1937)
“Have nothing in your house that you do not know to be useful, or believe to be beautiful.”
"The Beauty of Life," a lecture before the Birmingham Society of Arts and School of Design (19 February 1880)
“They who lack talent expect things to happen without effort. They ascribe failure to a lack of inspiration or ability, or to misfortune, rather than to insufficient application. At the core of every true talent there is an awareness of the difficulties inherent in any achievement, and the confidence that by persistence and patience something worthwhile will be realized. Thus talent is a species of vigor.”
Between the Devil and the Dragon: The Best Essays and Aphorisms of Eric Hoffer (Harper & Row, 1982), p. 67
