The chief end of a man in New York is dissipation; in Boston, conversation.
When you are aspiring to the highest place, it is honorable to reach the second or even the third rank.—Cicero.
The man who seeks one thing in life, and but one,
May hope to achieve it before life be done;
But he who seeks all things, wherever he goes,
Only reaps from the hopes which around him he sows
A harvest of barren regrets.—Owen Meredith
