*Most people have a reasonably good reason for lying to you. Either they want to get something from you, or they want to avoid having you mad at them. The person to fear is the one who lies just because the want to, or can, or can not do anything but lie.
*It’s easy to be indignant at the rudeness and ill manners of others, but when was the last time you took stock of your own level of social decency?
Common sense in an uncommon degree is what the world calls wisdom.
Samuel Taylor Coleridge
