I not only use all the brains that I have, but all that I can borrow.

Francis Quarles

Sitting at the table doesn't make you a diner, unless you eat some of what's on that plate. Being here in America doesn't make you an American. Being born here in America doesn't make you an American.

It's better to do nothing with your money than something you don't understand.

Life does not cease to be funny when people die any more than it ceases to be serious when people laugh.

In Paris they simply stared when I spoke to them in French; I never did succeed in making those idiots understand their language.

The vitality of thought is in adventure. Ideas won't keep. Something must be done about them.
