Three failures denote uncommon strength. A weakling has not enough grit to fail thrice.

It takes more than a wise man to keep track of a foolish woman.
When a woman gives more attention to her dinner than to the clever man beside her, she furnishes conclusive evidence that she has more than half covered her century run.
Between flattery and admiration there often flows a river of contempt.
Some men act upon women like champagne; when they appear the women are sparkling and full of brilliance; when they leave the fair ones grow flat, stale, and most unprofitable companions.
The drama of life begins with a wail and ends with a sigh.
Enthusiasms, like stimulants, are often affected by people with small mental ballast.
An epigram is a flashlight of a truth; a witticism, truth laughing at itself.
Experience is a good teacher, but she sends in terrific bills.
