John Ruskin's words are full of inspiration and wisdom.
There is no wealth but life.
A little thought and a little kindness are often
worth more than a great deal of money.
It is not how much one makes but to what purpose one spends.
The greatest thing a human soul ever does in this world is to see
something and tell what it saw in a plain way. Hundreds of people can
talk for one who can think, but thousands can think for one who can see.
To see clearly is poetry, prophecy and religion, all in one.
Education is the leading of human souls to what is best, and
making what is best out of them.
A thing is worth what it can do for you, not what you choose to pay for it.
Do not think of your faults, still less of other's faults; look for what is
good and strong, and try to imitate it. Your faults will drop off, like
dead leaves, when their time comes.
Quality is never an accident. It is always the result of intelligent effort.
Say all you have to say in the fewest possible words,
or your reader will be sure to skip them; and in the plainest possible
words or he will certainly misunderstand them.
To make your children capable of honesty is the beginning of education.
Remember that the most beautiful things in the world are the most
useless: peacocks and lilies for instance.
When love and skill work together, expect a masterpiece.
All books are divisible into two classes, the books of the hour,
and the books of all time.
