towards sensuality; they fall into habits and routine, and run in ruts;
they carry the grain on one side of the horse, and a stone on the

in an earnest effort after comprehension and enlargement.
President of the college,
"People always get what
they want. But there is a price for everything. Failures are either
who do not know what they want or are not prepared to pay the price

Whatever price you are asked, you must pay."
"My job is to bore you
and let the hardness of your seat and the warmth of your robe prepare
for what is to come."
