"The British constitution has always been puzzling and always will be."

Some have made similar statements, but though this one may not be the first,
it seems to be the accurate wording by the speaker, who has been in the news lately.
I dream, therefore I am.

I don't think Maggie has been in the news lately?
The speaker I'm looking for also said -
Work is the rent you pay for the room you occupy on earth.

It's all to do with the training: you can do a lot if you're properly trained.

Cowards falter, but danger is often overcome by those who nobly dare.

Let us not take ourselves too seriously. None of us has a monopoly on wisdom.

We all need to get the balance right between action and reflection. With so many distractions, it is easy to forget to pause and take stock.

When life seems hard, the courageous do not lie down and accept defeat; instead, they are all the more determined to struggle for a better future.
I dream, therefore I am.
