quotes
Everyone in our culture wants to win a prize. Perhaps that is the grand lesson we have taken with us from kindergarten in the age of perversions of Dewey-style education: everyone gets a ribbon, and praise becomes a meaningless narcotic to soothe egoistic distemper.

- Early, Gerald
When I play with my cat, who knows whether she is not amusing herself with me more than I with her.

- Montaigne, Michel Eyquem De
Wear your learning like a watch and do not pull it out merely to show you have it. If you are asked for the time, tell it; but do not proclaim it hourly unasked.

- Chesterfield, Lord
Success consists of doing the common things of life uncommonly well.

The whole imposing edifice of modern medicine is like the celebrated tower of Pisa --slightly off balance.

- Charles, Prince Of Wales
The lessons taught in great books are misleading. The commerce in life is rarely so simple and never so just.

- Brookner, Anita
Poets and heroes are of the same race, the latter do what the former conceive.

- Lamartine, Alphonse De
I believe that every person is born with talent.

- Angelou, Maya
Do well and you will have no need for ancestors.

- Voltaire
A line will take us hours maybe; Yet if it does not seem a moment's thought, our stitching and unstinting has been naught.

- Yeats, William Butler
My reason is not framed to bend or stoop: my knees are.

- Montaigne, Michel Eyquem De
We are able to find everything in our memory, which is like a dispensary or chemical laboratory in which chance steers our hand sometimes to a soothing drug and sometimes to a dangerous poison.

- Proust, Marcel
There are people who strictly deprive themselves of each and every eatable, drinkable, and smokable which has in any way acquired a shady reputation. They pay this price for health. And health is all they get for it. How strange it is. It is like paying out your whole fortune for a cow that has gone dry.

- Mark Twain
The fatal metaphor of progress, which means leaving things behind us, has utterly obscured the real idea of growth, which means leaving things inside us.

- Chesterton, Gilbert K.
LAUGHTER, n. An interior convulsion, producing a distortion of the features and accompanied by inarticulate noises. It is infectious and, though intermittent, incurable. Liability to attacks of laughter is one of the characteristics distinguishing man from the animals -- these being not only inaccessible to the provocation of his example, but impregnable to the microbes having original jurisdiction in bestowal of the disease. Whether laughter could be imparted to animals by inoculation from the human patient is a question that has not been answered by experimentation. Dr. Meir Witchell holds that the infection character of laughter is due to the instantaneous fermentation of _sputa_ diffused in a spray. From this peculiarity he names the disorder _Convulsio spargens_.

- Ambrose Bierce
Poetry is the exquisite expression of exquisite expressions.

- Roux, Joseph
The further through life I drift the more obvious it becomes that I am lacking in thrift.

- Nash, Ogden
If he works for you, you work for him.

- Proverb, Japanese
Be not penny-wise. Riches have wings. Sometimes they fly away of themselves, and sometimes they must be set flying to bring in more.

- Bacon, Francis
Once you consent to some concession, you can never cancel it and put things back the way they are.

- Hughes, Howard
