Gems to Remember 

''Genius is infinite painstaking." — Longfellow. 

''Genius is nothing but continued attention." — Helvetius. 

•'Genius is superior aptitude to patience."— Buffon. 

"I know no such thing as genius; it is nothing but labor and diligence." — Hogarth. 

'The great high-road of human welfare lies along the old highway of steadfast well doing; and 
they who are most persistent and work in the truest spirit, will invariably be the most 
successful; success treads on the heels of every right effort." — S. S^aLES. 

' If any young person expects without faith, without thought, without study, without patient 
perservering labor, in the midst of and in spite of discouragements, to attain anything 
that is worth while attaining, he will simply wake up, bye-and-bye and find that he has 
been placing the part of a fool." — M. J. S.wage. 

' Education is a companion which no misfortune can depress— no crime destroy — no enemy 
alienate — no despotism enslave. At home a friend; abroad an introduction; in solitude, 
a solace, and in society, an ornament. Without it what is man? Splendid slave, a 
reasoning savage." — Vakle. 



Class Motto 

''May I reach 
That purest haven — be to other souls 
The cup of strength in some great agony, 
Enkindle generous ardor, feed true love. 
Beget the smiles that have no cruelty. 
Be the sweet presence of a good diffused 
And in diffusion evermore intense! 
So shall I join the choir invisible, 
■Whose music is the gladness of the world." 

GEORGE ELIOT
