David Berlinski
Seventeenth-century Jesuits wondered why dogs do not talk. Their conclusion bears repeating. They have nothing to say.


Thomas Bailey Aldrich
The possession of gold has ruined fewer men than the lack of it. What noble enterprises have been checked and what fine souls have been blighted in the gloom of poverty the world will never know.

Shana Alexander
The sad thing is that excellence makes people nervous.


Josh Billings [Henry Wheeler Shaw]
A dog is the only thing on earth that loves you more than you love yourself.
