Quote It! Saturday
Psst. It's me. The Quote Mistress. Yes, I'm still here. Not keeping up with my book blog very well...let alone my quotes blog.
In the meantime, Freda's Voice has a wonderful meme called Quote It! that I'm also going to try to get back into. You can post as many quotes as you like. To join in, hop on over to Freda's place!
Here are my quotes for today (a bit of a mixed bag):
The nobler sort of man emphasizes the good qualities in others, and does not accentuate the bad. The inferior does the reverse.
The higher type of man clings to virtue, the lower type of man clings to material comfort. The higher type of man cherishes justice, the lower type of man cherishes the hope of favors to be received.
Our memories are card indexes consulted, and then put back in disorder by authorities whom we do not control.
Without music, life is a journey through a desert.
Oh, how cruelly sweet are the echoes that start
When Memory plays an old tune on the heart!
Politics is a lot like religion. Except in politics, it's your opponent who confesses your sins.
Coolidge's Second Law: A lost article invariably shows up after you replace it.
