Author Quotes

When we hide our failings from others, we seek to hide them from ourselves, and it is in the latter attempt that we are most successful.

A truth which one has never heard causes the soul surprise at first, which touches it keenly; but when it is accustomed to it, it becomes very insensible there.

We need a reason to speak, but none to keep silent.
