Words to keep
"A teacher affects eternity; he can never tell where his influence stops." —Henry Brooks Adams (The Education of Henry Adams)
Literature & arts
The county of Barsetshire, England, exists only in a series of novels by Anthony Trollope, which were written in the 19th century. Trollope's fine appreciation of people and society enabled him to make Barsetshire seem as real as any place in the physical world. His novels are not sensational like those of Charles Dickens, but they are rich in insights that remind us to look kindly on the people around us — and ourselves!
