Quotes for Today

  • Never upstage a man. Don't top his joke, even if you have to bite your tongue to keep from doing it. Never launch loudly into your own opinions on a subject — whether it's petunias or politics. Instead, draw out his ideas to which you can gracefully add your footnotes from time to time.

  • ... it was a great holiness, a religion, as all great loves must be.

  • Age is a subjective experience, as is time. ... A moment of ecstasy may seem to last beyond its objective measurement on the clock, so may days or weeks of idleness appear to vanish without a trace. It is the same with age — for what is age but time?

  • A woman may accept every tribute that a chivalrous man may offer to her talent or wit, so long as it is expressed in a hearty spirit of good comradeship, and with a clear and unmistakable deference to her self-respecting dignity; but a well-bred woman will resent as an insult to her womanhood any quasi-sentimental overtures from a man who has not the right to make them.

  • ... love is always in danger of being sentimentalized.

  • To have and not to give is often worse than to steal.

  • It takes people a long time to learn the difference between talent and genius, especially ambitious young men and women.
