Oliver Wendell Holmes
Without wearing any mask we are conscious of, we have a special face for each friend.
Man`s mind stretched to a new idea never goes back to its original dimension.
The mind of a bigot is like the pupil of the eye. The more light you shine on it, the more it will contract.
Don`t flatter yourself that friendship authorizes you to say disagreeable things to your intimates. On the contrary, the nearer you come into relation with a person, the more necessary do tact and courtesy become.
A moment`s insight is sometimes worth a life`s experience.
Many people die with their music still in them. Why is this so? Too often it is because they are always getting ready to live. Before they know it, time runs out.
The sound of a kiss is not so loud as that of a cannon, but its echo lasts a great deal longer.
The great thing in the world is not so much where we stand, as in what direction we are moving.
