Everyone in our culture wants to win a prize. Perhaps that is the grand lesson we have taken with us from kindergarten in the age of perversions of Dewey-style education: everyone gets a ribbon, and praise becomes a meaningless narcotic to soothe egoistic distemper. (Quote by - Gerald Early)

There is a sort of veteran woman of condition, who, having lived always in the grand monde, and having possibly had some gallantries, together with the experience of five and twenty or thirty years, form a young fellow better than all the rules that can be given him. Wherever you go, make some of those women your friends; which a very little matter will do. Ask their advice, tell them your doubts or difficulties as to your behavior; but take great care not to drop one word of their experience; for experience implies age, and the suspicion of age, no woman, let her be ever so old, ever forgives. (Quote by - Lord Chesterfield)

Wisdom is ofttimes nearer when we stoop than when we soar. (Quote by - William Wordsworth)

The only thing to do with good advice is to pass it on. It is never of any use to oneself. (Quote by - Oscar Wilde)

If one takes pride in one's craft, you won't let a good thing die. Risking it through not pushing hard enough is not a humility. (Quote by - Paul Keating)

To know a man, observe how he wins his object, rather than how he loses it; for when we fail, our pride supports; when we succeed; it betrays us. (Quote by - Charles Caleb Colton)

Gray skies are just clouds passing over. (Quote by - Duke Ellington)

At night, when the curtains are drawn and the fire flickers, my books attain a collective dignity. (Quote by - Edward M. Forster)

For an actress to be a success, she must have the face of Venus, the brains of a Minerva, the grace of Terpsichore, the memory of a Macaulay, the figure of Juno, and the hide of a rhinoceros. (Quote by - Ethel Barrymore)

Great spirits have always encountered violent opposition from mediocre minds. (Quote by - Albert Einstein)
