Quote by Ken Kesey
They can't tell so much about you if you got your eyes closed.
This quote suggests that keeping our eyes closed, metaphorically, prevents others from truly understanding or judging us. By closing our eyes, we create a shield of privacy and mystery that makes it difficult for others to perceive our true thoughts, emotions, or intentions. It implies that maintaining a certain level of secrecy or vagueness can be advantageous in preserving our personal boundaries and preventing others from making assumptions or passing judgment based solely on what they see on the surface.
For just as poets love their own works, and fathers their own children, in the same way those who have created a fortune value their money, not merely for its uses, like other persons, but because it is their own production. This makes them moreover disagreeable companions, because they will praise nothing but riches.
