    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    Eric Hoffer (1902–1983)

    The exquisite art of idleness, one of the most important things that any University can teach.
    Oscar Wilde (1854–1900)

    I’ll wager the rascals a crown
    They always preach best with a skinful.
    Oliver Goldsmith (1730?–1774)
