As a general thing, I have not 'duped the world' nor attempted to do so... I have generally given people the worth of their money twice told.

True economy consists in always making the income exceed the out-go. Wear the old clothes a little longer if necessary; dispense with the new pair of gloves; mend the old dress: live on plainer food if need be; so that, under all circumstances, unless some unforeseen accident occurs, there will be a margin in favor of the income.

真正的经济在于始终使收入超过支出. 必要时穿些旧衣服; 免除这副新手套; 修补旧衣服:如果需要,靠简单的食物生活; 因此,在任何情况下,除非发生某些不可预见的事故,否则都会有一定的利润余地.

Unless a man enters upon the vocation intended for him by nature, and best suited to his peculiar genius, he cannot succeed. I am glad to believe that the majority of persons do find their right vocation.

除非一个人从事天生为他准备的,最适合其独特天才的职业,否则他就不会成功. 我很高兴相信大多数人确实找到了正确的职业.

Science is the pursuit of pure truth, and the systematizing of it.

There is no such thing in the world as luck. There never was a man who could go out in the morning and find a purse full of gold in the street to-day, and another to-morrow, and so on, day after day: He may do so once in his life; but so far as mere luck is concerned, he is as liable to lose it as to find it.

世界上没有运气. 从来没有一个人可以每天早上出去在街上找到一个装满黄金的钱包,再到明天等等,日复一日等等:他一生只能这样做一次. 但是就运气而言,他很容易失去运气,而找不到运气.
