    The self-styled intellectual who is impotent with pen and ink hungers to write history with sword and blood.
    Eric Hoffer (1902–1983)

    The feeling of being hurried is not usually the result of living a full life and having no time. It is on the contrary born of a vague fear that we are wasting our life. When we do not do the one thing we ought to do, we have no time for anything else—we are the busiest people in the world.
    —Eric Hoffer (1902–1983)
