Max Lerner, American journalist
born: December 20, 1902
There is no excellence without labor. One cannot dream oneself into either usefulness or happiness.
Liberty Hyde Bailey, American scientist
When a book raises your spirit, and inspires you with noble and manly thoughts, seek for not other test of its excellence. It is good, and made by a good workman.
Jean de la Bruyère, French philosopher
