Frances Bennett Callaway

  • People who take no pains no see things as they are, who are given to exaggeration, and careless of their statements, may so weaken the faculties of the mind as to bring on pseudophobia and become in a measure incapable of speaking the truth.

  • Politeness is not stupid, commonplace lying, as so many suppose, but the fine art of selecting from our real thoughts the kindest and best, and those adapted to bring out the brightest wit and finest feeling of our friend in the conversation we are engaged in.

  • ... the mightiest power in the world is a kind word prompted by the impulse of a loving heart.

Frances Bennett Callaway, U.S. writer
