A Quote by Christopher Darlington Morley on unanimity, read, think, do, silly, and self

Read, every day, something no one else is reading. Think, every day, something no one else is thinking. Do, every day, something no one else would be silly enough to do. It is bad for the mind to be always part of unanimity.

A Quote by Christopher Darlington Morley on crisis, curiosity, existence, humanity, and observation

Everybody thinks of others as being excessively human, with all the frailties and crotchets appertaining to that curious condition. But each of us also seems to regard himself as existing on a detached plane of observation, exempt (save in moments of avid crisis) from the strange whims of humanity en masse.
