Please enjoy these encouraging quotes by Abraham Pais.

until I came to the point when I could not write another word,

I went to bed.
Eight o'clock the next morning I was up writing again.
- Abraham Pais

One of the things I learned, one of the strangest things,

only a fixed quantity of each resource -
a limited amount of food, of money,
of love, of success, of appreciation.
For others, life is unlimited.
Their world expands with the generosity, compassion,
inventiveness, and service that they contribute.
In this world-view, money that is spent
or given away returns multiplied.
