And wit's the noblest frailty of the mind.
I am, out of the ladies' company, like a fish out of the water.
No man is happy but by comparison.
The haste of a fool is the slowest thing in the world.
Words may be false and full of art; Sighs are the natural language of the heart.
I hate it when people are impolite to waiters or to the valet or the guy in the supermarket. There's no need for that; it doesn't cost anything to be polite.
