If we encounter a man of rare intellect, we should ask him what books he reads.
The books we read should be chosen with great care, that they may be, as an Egyptian king wrote over his library,'The medicines of the soul."
A man should look for what is, and not for what he thinks should be.
We should take care not to make the intellect our god; it has, of course, powerful muscles, but no personality.
If you treat an individual as he is, he will remain how he is. But if you treat him as if he were what he ought to be and could be, he will become what he ought to be and could be.
If we suspect that a man is lying, we should pretend to believe him; for then he becomes bold and assured, lies more vigorously, and is unmasked.
If we would learn what the human race really is at bottom, we need only observe it in election times.
You can tell the greatness of a man by what makes him angry
A man is but the product of his thoughts. What he thinks, he becomes.
I hate vulgar realism in literature. The man who would call a spade a spade should be compelled to use one.
One should never trust a woman who tells one her real age. A woman who would tell one that would tell one anything.
