Erudition, n. Dust shaken out of a book into an empty skull. Ambrose Bierce, "The Devil's Dictionary"
Only the broken-hearted know the truth about love. Mason Cooley, "City Aphorisms"
Love, n. A temporary insanity curable by marriage or by removal of the patient from the influences under which he incurred the disorder. This disease is prevalent only among civilized races living under artificial conditions; barbarous nations breathing pure air and eating simple food enjoy immunity from its ravages. It is sometimes fatal, but more frequently to the physician than to the patient. Ambrose Bierce, "The Devil's Dictionary"
God give me work, till my life shall end.
And life, till my work is done. Winifred Holtby`s epitaph
