On order and method

   Order is heaven's first law. 


   A place for everything, everything in its place. 


   All is soon ready in an orderly house. 

   Let all things be done decently and in order. 

                                     I Cor 14:40

   Order is the sanctity of the mind, the health of the body, the 
   peace of the city, the security of the state. - As the beams to 
   a house, as the bones to the body, so is order to all things.


   One day is as good as two for him who does everything in its 

   Let all your things have their place; let each part of your 
   business have its time. 

   He who has no taste for order, will be often wrong in his 
   judgment, or seldom considerate or conscientious in his 

   Have a time and place for everything, and do everything in its 
   time and place, and you will not only accomplish more, but have 
   far more leisure than those who are always hurrying, as if 
   vainly attempting to overtake time that has been lost.

                                                Tyron Edwards

   Order is a lovely nymph, the child of beauty and wisdom; her 
   attendants are comfort, neatness and activity; her abode is the 
   valley of happiness; she is always to be found when sought for, 
   and never appears so lovely as when contrasted with her 
   opponent, disorder. 

   Desultoriness may often be the mark of a full head; connection 
   must proceed from a thoughtful one. 


   Order means light and peace, inward liberty and free command 
   over one's self; order is power. 


   Set all things in their own particular place, and know that 
   order is the greatest grace. 

   Good order is the foundation of all good things. 


   Dispatch is the life of business, and method is the soul of 

   Method and dispatch govern the world. 

   Method goes far to prevent trouble in business; for it makes 
   the task easy, hinders confusion, saves abundance of time, and 
   instructs those who have business depending, what to do and 
   what to hope. 

   Be methodical if you would succeed in business, or in anything.  
   -- Have a work for every moment, and mind the moment's work. -- 
   Whatever your calling, master all its bearings and details, its 
   principles, instruments, and applications. -- Method is 
   essential if you would get through your work easily and with 
   economy of time. 

                                                 W. Mathews

   Method is like packing things in a box; a good packer will get
