  • ⋅While there is a chance of the world getting through its troubles, I hold that a reasonable man has to behave as though he were sure of it. If at the end your cheerfulness in not justified, at any rate you will have been cheerful. /Herbert Wells
  • ⋅You have learned something. That always feels at first as if you had lost something. /Herbert Wells
