*How annoyed do you get when you spend a fortune on an expensive toy, and your child plays with the box! There’s a good lesson there, if you aren’t too blind to see it. It’s about desiring the wrong things, if you need a hint.
*A great friend will tell you I told you so when you’ve been stupid and didn’t listen to them, but not excessively.
Never trust a man who speaks well of everyone.
John Churton Collins
