“Life: we laugh and laugh, then cry and cry, then feebler laugh, then die.”

“I know better than to get tight oftener than once in 3 months. It sets a man back in the esteem of people whose opinions are worth having.”

“[Rudyard Kipling] is a stranger to me, but he is a most remarkable man—and I am the other one. Between us, we cover all knowledge; he knows all that can be known, and I know the rest.”

“Does the human being reason? No; he thinks, muses, reflects, but does not reason…That is, in the two things which are the peculiar domain of the heart, not the mind,—politics and religion. He doesn’t want to know the other side. He wants arguments and statistics for his own side, and nothing more.”
