Words: Our best friends, or our worst enemies.

"No heathen god or goddess has ever had more zealous devotees than fashion, or more absurd and humiliating rituals, or more mortifying and cruel penances. Her laws, like those of the Medes and Persians, must be implicitly obeyed. But, unlike them, they change as certainly as the moon. The are rarely founded in reason, usually violate common sense and decency and uniformly common comfort."
~ The Royal Path of Life

"A fop dressed out is like a cinnamon tree- the bark is worth more than the body."

"Education makes people easy to lead, but difficult to drive. Easy to govern, but impossible to enslave"

"The way to get things done is not to mind who gets the credit for doing it."

"If wisdom's ways you wisely seek,
Five things observe with care;
Of whom you speak,
To whom you speak,
And how,
And when,
And where...."
