More From Samuel Smiles
- "Lost wealth may be replaced by industry, lost knowledge by study, lost health by temperance or medicine, but lost time is gone forever."
- "Practical wisdom is only to be learned in the school of experience. Precepts and instruction are useful so far as they go, but, without the discipline of real life, they remain of the nature of theory only."
- "Hope… is the companion of power, and the mother of success; for who so hopes has within him the gift of miracles."
