“ ... it is usually in better taste to praise an isolated action or a production of genius, than a man's character as a whole.”
“Curiously enough, while very small people have a never-failing sense of their own importance, very great ones are often easily disheartened and put out of conceit with themselves.”
“If all the good people were clever, / And all clever people were good, / The world would be nicer than ever / We thought that it possibly could. / But somehow 'tis seldom or never / The two hit it off as they should, / The good are so harsh to the clever, / The clever, so rude to the good!”
Elizabeth Wordsworth, U.S. poet
(1840 - 1932)
