    • Every nation ridicules other nations, and all are right.
    • Every person takes the limits of their own field of vision for the limits of the world.
    • If we were not all so interested in ourselves, life would be so uninteresting that none of us would be able to endure it.
    • If we weren't all so interested in ourselves, life would be so uninteresting we couldn't endure it.
    • Noise is the most impertinent of all forms of interruption. It is not only an interruption, but is also a disruption of thought.
    • Talent hits a target no one else can hit; Genius hits a target no one else can see.
    • The amount of noise which anyone can bear undisturbed stands in inverse proportion to his mental capacity.
    • The memory should be specially taxed in youth, since it is then that it is strongest and most tenacious. But in choosing the things that should be committed to memory the utmost care and forethought must be exercised; as lessons well learnt in youth are never forgotten.
    • We forfeit three-fourths of ourselves in order to be like other people.
