Henry David Thoreau

When you're a child, grownups always tell you that "sticks and stones will break your bones, but words will never hurt you". They say it as if it's a kind of spell that's going to protect you.

Plato in his dialogue The Phaedo says that whereas sticks and stones are both equal and unequal, (so maybe what that means is that each stick is going to be equal to some other sticks and unequal to some other sticks, so equal to the stick on the left maybe but shorter than the stick on its right) the form of equal is going to be just equal, and it won't partake of inequality at all. And it will be the cause of equality in things that are equal, for example, equal sticks and stones. Peter Adamson

And don't spread your attachment to worldly things. Rajneesh

You can say anything with a Post-It. I'm not entirely sure why that is. Maybe the friendliness of the squares makes it easier. A square is nicely compact and less intimidating than a full page. And they come in cheerful colors. Non-white paper is kind of inherently festive. Or maybe paper that sticks feels more important than paper that can blow away. (Though you can move them, if you need to put them somewhere else.) They might not be as lasting as words carved in stone, but Post-It thoughts will stay. For awhile, at least. Erin Morgenstern

I'll take sticks and stones. Mary-Louise Parker

Ah, to build, to build! That is the noblest art of all the arts.

Without our expecting it, and we cannot do a thing against it, brothers. Jacques Roumain

Marcus Vitruvius Pollio
