True wisdom consists in not departing from nature and in moulding our conduct according to her laws and model.

On the happy life by Seneca 

Quote about human brain

22 Feb

A man`s brain originally is like a little empty attic, and you have to stock it with such furniture as you choose.A fool takes in all the lumber of every sort that he comes across, so that the knowledge which might be useful to him gets crowded out, or at best is jumbled up with a lot of other things, so that he has a difficulty in laying his hands upon it. Now the skillful workman is very careful, indeed, as to what he takes into his brain-attic.He will have nothing but the tools which may help him in doing his work, but of these he has a large assortment, and all in the most perfect order. It is a mistake to think that that little room has elastic walls and can distend to any extent. Depend upon it, there comes a time when for every addition of knowledge you forget something that you knew before. It is of the highest importance, therefore, not to have useless facts elbowing out the useful ones.

A Study in Scarlet by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle

No one can begin by being perfect …

6 Mar

No one can begin by being perfect – there is much one cannot understand in life at first ;in order to attain to perfection,one must begin by failing to understand much of what is.And if we take in knowledge too quickly,we very likely are not taking it in at all.

The Idiot by Fyodor Dostoevsky
