A writer only begins a book. A reader finishes it.

Curiosity is, in great and generous minds, the first passion and the last.

Great works are performed not by strength but by perseverance.

He who makes a beast of himself gets rid of the pain of being a man.

Kindness is in our power, even when fondness is not.

Love is the wisdom of the fool and the folly of the wise.

Patriotism is the last refuge of a scoundrel.

Promise, large promise, is the soul of an advertisement.

The future is purchased by the present.

/ Samuel Johnson
