Render Quotations

Victor Hugo

Nikola Tesla

Douglas Adams

Trust your instinct to the end, though you can render no reason.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

Small miseries, like small debts, hit us in so many places, and meet us at so many turns and corners, that what they want in weight, they make up in number, and render it less hazardous to stand the fire of one cannon ball, than a volley composed of such a shower of bullets.
Rudyard Kipling
