If you don't learn to laugh at troubles, you won't have anything to laugh at when you grow old.
No woman ever falls in love with a man unless she has a better opinion of him than he deserves.
You needn't love your enemy, but if you refrain from telling lies about him, you are doing well enough.
When you are in trouble, people who call to sympathize are really looking for the particulars.
When people hear good music, it makes them homesick for something they never had, and never will have.
People are always neglecting something they can do in trying to do something they can't do.
Don't abuse your friends and expect them to consider it criticism.
When a friend is in trouble, don't annoy him by asking if there is anything you can do. Think up something appropriate and do it.
There is always a type of man who says he loves his fellow men, and expects to make a living at it.
