Study as if you were going to live forever; live as if you were going to die tomorrow.
—  Maria Mitchell (1818 – 1889) was an American Astronomer, famous for discovering a comet in 1847. That comet is now known as ‘Miss Mitchell’s Comet’. Maria Mitchell was also the first American woman to work as a professional astronomer.
Fericirea nu poate fi mâine și nici ieri, ea nu poate fi nici în trecut, nici în viitor, ci doar în prezent- și ea nu durează o zi, ci doar o clipă.
—  Ivan Sergheievici Turgheniev (1818-1889)
