It is only from the people I've had the good fortune to meet that I am learning the lessons to guide me.

He asks loads of questions of everyone.
If we have faith in Jesus Christ, the hardest as well as the easiest times in life can be a blessing. In all conditions, we can choose the right with the guidance of the Spirit. We have the gospel of Jesus Christ to shape and guide our lives if we choose it.
Henry B. Eyring
Every individual ought to know at least one poet from cover to cover: if not as a guide through the world, then as a yardstick for the language.
I am a free man. I do not need to copy Petrarca or Boccaccio. My own genius is enough. Let others worry themselves about style, and so cease to be themselves. Without a master, without a model, without a guide, I go to work and earn my living, my well-being and my fame.
Let no one trust so entirely to natural prudence as to persuade himself that it will suffice to guide him without help from experience.

Leonardo da Vinci
