Be a good listener. Your ears will never get you in trouble.

Joan Didion

I write entirely to find out what I'm thinking, what I'm looking at, what I see and what it means. What I want and what I fear.

No matter how much you disagree with your kin, if you are a thoroughbred you will not discuss their shortcomings with the neighbors.

Chinese proverb

The palest ink is better than the best memory.

Recommend to your children virtue; that alone can make them happy, not gold.

David Starr Jordan

The world stands aside to let anyone pass who knows where he is going.

Associate with well-mannered persons and your manners will improve. Run around with decent folk and your own decent instincts will be strengthened.

Seize the moment of excited curiosity on any subject to solve your doubts; for if you let it pass, the desire may never return, and you may remain in ignorance.
