#Quote
1The nearer you come in relation with a person, the more necessary do tact and courtesy become.
2[on direction] The greatest thing in the world is not so much where we are, but in what direction we are moving.
3It is the province of knowledge to speak and it is the privilege of wisdom to listen.
4Life is a fatal complaint, and an eminently contagious one.
5A sick man that gets talking about himself, a woman that gets talking about her baby, and an author that begins reading out of his own book, never know when to stop.
6To be a parent is almost to be a fatalist.
7A moment's insight is sometimes worth a life's experience.
8Fame usually comes to those who are thinking about something else.
9Pretty much all the honest truth-telling there is in the world is done by children.
10I find the great thing in this world is not so much where we stand, as in what direction we are moving: To reach the port of heaven, we must sail sometimes with the wind and sometimes against it, but we must sail, and not drift, nor lie at anchor.
11Old age is fifteen years older than I am.
12Life and language are alike sacred. Homicide and verbicide--that is, violent treatment of a word with fatal results to its legitimate meaning, which is its life--are alike forbidden.
13Nothing is so commonplace as to wish to be remarkable.
