    Time, the cradle of hope, but the grave of ambition, is the stern corrector of fools, but the salutary counselor of the wise, bringing all they dread to the one, and all they desire to the other. He that has made it his friend will have little to fear from his enemies, but he that has made it his enemy will have little to hope from his friends.

    -Charles Caleb Colton (1780-1832)

    I have somewhere see it observed, that we should make the same use of a book that the bee does of a flower; she steals sweets from it, but does not injure it.

    -Colton
