Law grinds the poor, and rich men rule the law.
— Oliver Goldsmith

What a wee little part of a person's life are his acts and his words! His real life is led in his head, and is known to none but himself. All day long, the mill of his brain is grinding, and his thoughts, not those of other things, are his history. These are his life, and they are not written. Everyday would make a whole book of 80,000 words -- 365 books a year. Biographies are but the clothes and buttons of the man -- the biography of the man himself cannot be written.
Mark Twain grinding quote

Grinding quotes
Picture quote about Grinding

Everybody was in struggle, in the grind trying to make it.
— Young Buck

The tyrant grinds down his slaves and they don't turn against him, they crush those beneath them.
— Emily Bronte

All the lessons of history in four sentences: Whom the gods would destroy, they first make mad with power. The mills of God grind slowly, but they grind exceedingly small. The bee fertilizes the flower it robs. When it is dark enough, you can see the stars.
— grinding quotation by Charles A. Beard
