    I always enjoy reading quotations, they are really teaching and some of these quots on your blog somehow inspire courage and confidence in me. Especially Rockefeller’s one. I noticed that you put several of Mark Twain. Recently I’ve heard form an American ex-pat who works at NIS that Mark Twain has recently become very popular among the Americans to quot. It seems that “his time” has come.

    Especially, I like “Luck, when p comes in front”. I also do love quotations so much, the only phrase, the only sentence, but deep content and rich moral! Quotation is not the matter of telling something beautiful, but meaning something beautiful!
