[Quote No.32518] Need Area: Mind > Learn
"I quite agree, therefore, with Lord Iddesleigh as to the charm of desultory reading, but the wider the field the more important that we should benefit by the very best books in each class. Not that we need confine ourselves to them, but that we should commence with them, and they will certainly lead us on to others. There are of course some books which we must read, mark, learn, and inwardly digest. But these are exceptions. As regards by far the larger number, it is probably better to read them quickly, dwelling only on the best and most important passages. In this way, no doubt, we shall lose much, but we gain more by ranging over a wider field. We may, in fact, I think, apply to reading Lord Brougham's wise dictum as regards education, and say that it is well to read everything of something, and something of everything. In this way only we can ascertain the bent of our own tastes, for it is a general, though not of course an invariable, rule, that we profit little by books which we do not enjoy." - Sir John Lubbock
(1834 – 1913), English banker, member of Parliament, statesman, and naturalist. Quote from his book ‘The Pleasures of Life’ (2 vol., 1887–89).

"In [learning and] reading, however, it is most important to select subjects in which one is interested. I remember years ago consulting Mr. Darwin as to the selection of a course of study. He asked me what interested me most, and advised me to choose that subject. This, indeed, applies to the work of life generally." - Sir John Lubbock

"It is said that the celebrated physiognomist, Campanella, could so abstract [distract] his attention from any sufferings of his body, that he was even able to endure the rack without much pain; and whoever has the power of concentrating [focusing] his attention and controlling his will, can emancipate himself from most of the minor miseries of life. He may have much cause for anxiety, his body may be the seat of severe suffering, and yet his mind will remain serene and unaffected; he may triumph over care and pain." - Sir John Lubbock

[Quote No.32628] Need Area: Mind > Evolve
"The Hindus have a theory that after death animals live again in a different form; those that have done well in a higher, those that have done ill in a lower grade. To realize this is, they find, a powerful incentive to a virtuous life. But whether it be true of a future life or not, it is certainly true of our present existence. If we do our best for a day, the next morning we shall rise to a higher life; while if we give way to our passions and temptations, we take with equal certainty a step downward toward a lower nature." - Sir John Lubbock

[Quote No.32579] Need Area: Body > Health
"But if all are agreed as to the blessing of health, there are many who will not take the little trouble, or submit to the slight sacrifices, necessary to maintain it. Many, indeed, deliberately ruin their own health, and incur the certainty of an early grave, or an old age of suffering. No doubt some inherit a constitution which renders health almost unattainable... But happily these cases are exceptional. Most of us might be well, if we would. It is very much our own fault that we are ill. We do those things which we ought not to do, and we leave undone those things which we ought to have done, and then we wonder there is no health in us." - Sir John Lubbock

[Quote No.32629] Need Area: Body > General
"It is often assumed that the journey to 'The undiscovered country from whose bourne no traveler returns' must be one of pain and suffering. But this is not so. Death is often peaceful and almost painless. Bede during his late illness was translating St. John's Gospel into Anglo-Saxon, and the morning of his death his secretary, observing his weakness, said, 'There remains now only one chapter, and it seems difficult to you to speak.' 'It is easy,' said Bede; 'take your pen and write as fast as you can,' At the close of the chapter the scribe said, 'It is finished,' to which he replied, 'Thou hast said the truth, consummatum est.' He then divided his little property among the brethren, having done which he asked to be placed opposite to the place where he usually prayed, said 'Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Ghost,' and as he pronounced the last words he expired. Goethe died without any apparent suffering, having just prepared himself to write, and expressed his delight at the return of spring. We are told of Mozart's death that the unfinished requiem lay upon the bed, and his last efforts were to imitate some peculiar instrumental effects, as he breathed out his life in the arms of his wife and their friend Suessmaier. Plato died in the act of writing; Lucan while reciting part of his book on the war of Pharsalus; Blake died singing; Wagner in sleep with his head on his wife's shoulder. Many have passed away in their sleep. Various high medical authorities have expressed their surprise that the dying seldom feel either dismay or regret." - Sir John Lubbock
(1834 – 1913), English banker, member of Parliament, statesman, and naturalist. Quote from his book ‘The Pleasures of Life’ (2 vol., 1887–89). [bourne = n. Archaic 1. A destination; a goal. 2. A boundary; a limit.]

[Quote No.32627] Need Area: Work > Make
"It is, indeed, as true now as in the time of Newton, that the great ocean of truth lies undiscovered before us. I often wish that some President of the Royal Society, or of the British Association, would take for the theme of his annual address 'The things we do not know.' Who can say on the verge of what discoveries we are perhaps even now standing! It is extraordinary how slight a margin may stand for years between Man and some important improvement. Take the case of the electric light, for instance. It had been known for years that if a carbon rod be placed in an exhausted glass receiver, and a current of electricity be passed through it the carbon glowed with an intense light, but on the other hand it became so hot that the glass burst. The light, therefore, was useless, because the lamp burst as soon as it was lighted. Edison hit on the idea that if you made the carbon filament fine enough, you would get rid of the heat and yet have abundance of light. Edison's right to his patent has been contested on this very ground. It has been said that the mere introduction of so small a difference as the replacement of a thin rod by a fine filament was so slight an item that it could not be patented. The improvements by Swan, Lane Fox, and others, though so important as a whole, have been made step by step. Or take again the discovery of anaesthetics. At the beginning of the century Sir Humphrey discovered laughing gas, as it was then called. He found that it produced complete insensibility to pain and yet did not injure health. A tooth was actually taken out under its influence, and of course without suffering. These facts were known to our chemists, they were explained to the students in our great hospitals, and yet for half a century the obvious application occurred to no one. Operations continued to be performed as before, patients suffered the same horrible tortures, and yet the beneficent element was in our hands, its divine properties were known, but it never occurred to any one to make use of it. I may give one more illustration. Printing is generally said to have been discovered in the fifteenth century; and so it was for all practical purposes. But in fact printing was known long before. The Romans used stamps; on the monuments of Assyrian kings the name of the reigning monarch may be found duly printed. What then is the difference? One little, but all-important step. The real inventor of printing was the man into whose mind flashed the fruitful idea of having separate stamps for each letter, instead of for separate words. How slight seems the difference, and yet for 3000 years the thought occurred to no one. Who can tell what other discoveries [innovations and improvements], as simple and yet as far-reaching, lie at this very moment under our very eyes! Archimedes said that if you would give him room to stand on, he would move the earth. One truth leads to another; each discovery renders possible another, and, what is more, a higher [which is also true of all products and services]." - Sir John Lubbock

"A frank pleasant manner will often clench a bargain more effectually than a half per cent." - Sir John Lubbock
(1834 – 1913), English banker, statesman, and naturalist. As a member of Parliament from 1870, he introduced many reform bills, especially in banking. His scientific contributions were in entomology and anthropology and include his ‘Prehistoric Times’ (1865), long used as a textbook in several languages; popular works include ‘Ants, Bees, and Wasps’ (1882) and ‘The Pleasures of Life’ (2 vol., 1887–89). Quote from his essay 'Tact'.

[Quote No.32600] Need Area: Property > Garden/Nature
"Nor is it only the number of the heavenly bodies which is so overwhelming; their magnitude and distances are almost more impressive... Our globe is little compared to the giant orbs of Jupiter and Saturn, which again sink into insignificance by the side of the sun. The sun itself is almost as nothing compared with the dimensions of the solar system. Sirius is calculated to be a thousand times as great as the Sun, and a million times as far away. The solar system itself travels in one region of space, sailing between worlds and worlds, and is surrounded by many other systems as great and complex as itself; and we know that even then we have not reached the limits of the Universe itself. There are stars so distant that their light, though travelling 180,000 miles in a second, yet takes years to reach us; and beyond all these are other systems of stars which are so far away that they cannot be perceived singly, but even in our most powerful telescopes appear only as minute clouds or nebulae." - Sir John Lubbock
(1834 – 1913), English banker, member of Parliament, statesman, and naturalist. Quote from his book ‘The Pleasures of Life’ (2 vol., 1887–89).
