To my mind the Old Masters are not art; their value is in their scarcity.

Gilbert K. Chesterton

Art, like morality, consists in drawing the line somewhere.

There are no greater wretches in the world than many of those whom people in general take to be happy.

Elias Root Beadle

Half the work that is done in this world is to make things appear what they are not.

Daniel Webster

The world is governed more by appearances than by realities, so that it is fully as necessary to seem to know something as to know it.

Borrow trouble for yourself, if that is your nature, but don't lend it to your neighbors.
