Highlights

“There are few people whom I really love, and still fewer of whom I think well. The more I see of the world, the more am I dissatisfied with it; and every day confirms my belief of the inconsistency of all human characters, and of the little dependence that can be placed on the appearance of merit or sense.”

“Vanity and pride are different things, though the words are often used synonymously. A person may be proud without being vain. Pride relates more to our opinion of ourselves, vanity to what we would have others think of us.”

“You must learn some of my philosophy. Think only of the past as its remembrance gives you pleasure.”

“Now be sincere; did you admire me for my impertinence?”
“For the liveliness of your mind, I did.”
