The submission of her body without love or desire is degrading to the woman's finer sensibility, all the marriage certificates on earth to the contrary notwithstanding.
My father was a member of the Teamsters Union in California, where he helped to organize better health care for workers. My mother worked for more than 20 years on an assembly line.
Never say you know a man until you have divided an inheritance with him.
Johann Kaspar Lavater
Intuition is the clear concept of the whole at once.
Him, who incessantly laughs in the street, you may commonly hear grumbling in his closet.
Beware of him who hates the laugh of a child.
Have you ever seen a pedant with a warm heart?
There are three classes of men; the retrograde, the stationary and the progressive.
Mistrust the person who finds everything good, and the person who finds everything evil, and mistrust even more the person who is indifferent to everything.
Who makes quick use of the moment is a genius of prudence.
He submits to be seen through a microscope, who suffers himself to be caught in a fit of passion.
He is incapable of truly good action who finds not a pleasure in contemplating the good actions of others.
He knows very little of mankind who expects, by any facts or reasoning, to convince a determined party man.
Airs of importance are the credentials of impotence.
The public seldom forgive twice.
I am prejudiced in favor of him who, without impudence, can ask boldly. He has faith in humanity, and faith in himself. No one who is not accustomed to giving grandly can ask nobly and with boldness.
You may depend upon it that he is a good man whose intimate friends are all good, and whose enemies are decidedly bad.

Society is a masked ball, where every one hides his real character, and reveals it by hiding.
It is easy in the world to live after the world's opinions; it is easy in solitude to live after your own; but the great man is he who in the midst of the crowd keeps with perfect sweetness the independence of solitude.
Solitude is impractical and yet society is fatal.
Conversation enriches the understanding; but solitude is the school of genius.
Sorrow makes us children again.
The only thing grief as taught me is to know how shallow it is.
Sorrow makes us all children again, destroys all differences of intellect. The wisest knows nothing.
The soul's emphasis is always right.
All the great speakers were bad speakers at first.
Condense some daily experience into a glowing symbol and an audience is electrified.
Speech is power: speech is to persuade, to convert, to compel. It is to bring another out of his bad sense into your good sense.
The foundations of a person are not in matter but in spirit.
Even the worst Bond movies, there's something to love about them.
