Know thyself . . Improve thyself

"'Know thyself,' said the old philosopher, 'improve thyself,' saith the new. Our great object in time is not to waste our passions and gifts on the things external that we must leave behind, but that we cultivate within us all that we can carry into the eternal progress beyond."
- Edward Bulwer-Lytton (English dramatist, novelist, & politician; 1803 - 1873)
