It is easy for others to put you down when they are simply agreeing with you.
There is a definite process by which one made people into friends, and it involved talking to them and listening to them for hours at a time.
—Rebecca West (English Author)
We shall not cease from exploration|And the end of all our exploring|Will be to arrive where we started|And know the place for the first time.
—T. S. Eliot (American-born British Poet)
To lengthen thy life, lessen thy meals.
—Benjamin Franklin (American Political leader)
Here, you have the remote. We’re lost. Let’s stop and ask for directions. Why don’t we go and see a romantic film for a change. No, let me take out the rubbish. I’ll just separate the white clothes from the coloured ones. Isn’t it my turn to change the baby? I’ll turn off the rugby so we can talk.
Friendship without self-interest is one of the rare and beautiful things of life.
—James F. Byrnes (American Elected Representative)
Life is like a book. You can’t look at the beginning and the end and know what it’s all about. You have to live it all the way through.
