Wiser Today

A man should never be ashamed to own 
that he has been in the wrong, 
which is but saying in other words 
that he is wiser today than he was yesterday.

-Alexander Pope

Now To Think

And now I thought: 
till now I had only heard, seen, moved - 
followed up or down where I was lead or dragged - 
watched event rush on event,
 disclosure open beyond disclosure: 
but now, I thought

- Charlotte Bronte, Jane Eyre

Bravery in Increments

When you have mastered numbers, 
you will in fact no longer be reading numbers
any more than you read words when you read books. 
You will be reading meaning.

W.E.B. DuBois
