Famous quotes containing the words studies, boyhood and/or journal:
“Even if one studies to an old age, one will never finish learning.”
“I looked at my daughters, and my boyhood picture, and appreciated the gift of parenthood, at that moment, more than any other gift I have ever been given. For what person, except ones own children, would want so deeply and sincerely to have shared your childhood? Who else would think your insignificant and petty life so precious in the living, so rich in its expressiveness, that it would be worth partaking of what you were, to understand what you are?”
—Gerald Early (20th century)
“How truly does this journal contain my real and undisguised thoughtsI always write it according to the humour I am in, and if a stranger was to think it worth reading, how capriciousinsolent & whimsical I must appear!one moment flighty and half mad,the next sad and melancholy. No matter! Its truth and simplicity are its sole recommendations.”
—Frances Burney (17521840)
