The only thing to do with good advice is to pass it on. It is never of any use to oneself.

A lovely thing about Christmas is that it's compulsory, like a thunderstorm, and we all go through it together.
Call a truce, then, to our labors -- let us feast with friends and neighbors, and be merry as the custom of our caste; for if faint and forced the laughter, and if sadness follow after, we are richer by one mocking Christmas past.
There are some people who want to throw their arms round you simply because it is Christmas; there are other people who want to strangle you simply because it is Christmas.
Christmas waves a magic wand over this world, and behold, everything is softer and more beautiful.
He who has not Christmas in his heart will never find it under a tree.
Christ was born in the first century, yet he belongs to all centuries. He was born a Jew, yet He belongs to all races. He was born in Bethlehem, yet He belongs to all countries.
From a commercial point of view, if Christmas did not exist it would be necessary to invent it.
Our prime purpose in this life is to help others. And if you can't help them, at least don't hurt them.
Happiness is not something ready made. It comes from your own actions.
Old friends pass away, new friends appear. It is just like the days. An old day passes, a new day arrives. The important thing is to make it meaningful: a meaningful friend -- or a meaningful day.
Happiness is a perfume which you cannot pour on someone without getting some on yourself.
I awoke this morning with devout thanksgiving for my friends, the old and new.
It is very hard to be simple enough to be good.
To divide one's life by years is of course to tumble into a trap set by our own arithmetic. The calendar consents to carry on its dull wall-existence by the arbitrary timetables we have drawn up in consultation with those permanent commuters, Earth and Sun. But we, unlike trees, need grow no annual rings.
Happiness is having a large, loving, caring, close-knit family in another city.
Life's but a day at most.
Look to the future, because that is where you'll spend the rest of your life.
Here lies interred in the eternity of the past, from whence there is no resurrection for the days -- whatever there may be for the dust -- the thirty-third year of an ill-spent life, which, after a lingering disease of many months sank into a lethargy, and expired, January 22d, 1821, A.D. leaving a successor inconsolable for the very loss which occasioned its existence.
It's hard for me to get used to these changing times. I can remember when the air was clean and sex was dirty.
Good breeding, a union of kindness and independence.
The dice of God are always loaded.
Them meaning of good and bad, of better and worse, is simply helping or hurting.
The less government we have the better.
I'd rather be a failure at something I love than a success at something I hate.
