W. Somerset Maugham
You are not very good if you are not better than your best friends imagine you to be.
Lavater, Johann Kaspar

Emerson, Ralph Waldo

Linall Jr. A. L.
Look, we're all the same; a man is a fourteen-room house --in the bedroom he's asleep with his intelligent wife, in the living-room he's rolling around with some bareass girl, in the library he's paying his taxes, in the yard he's raising tomatoes, and in the cellar he's making a bomb to blow it all up.

Thoreau, Henry David
