QUOTES FROM CHESTERFIELD'S LETTERS

Whatever real merit you have, other people will discover
 
The longest life is too short for knowledge
 
Smile, where you cannot strike
 
Success turns much more upon manner than matter
 
There are many avenues to every man
 
They thought I informed, because I pleased them
 
Pay them with compliments, but not with confidence
 
People hate those who make them feel their own inferiority
 
People lose a great deal of time by reading
 
Nothing so precious as time, and so irrecoverable when lost
 
No one feels pleasure, who does not at the same time give it
 
Never seem wiser, nor more learned, than the people you are with
 
Never seek for wit; if it presents itself, well and good
 
Never to speak of yourself at all
 
Never slattern away one minute in idleness
 
Never quit a subject till you are thoroughly master of it
 
More you know, the modester you should be
 
More one works, the more willing one is to work
 
Money, the cause of much mischief
 
Always look people in the face when you speak to them
 
A little learning is a dangerous thing
 
Advice is seldom welcome
 
Acquainted with books, and an absolute stranger to men
LETTERS TO HIS SON, 1766-1771 by The Earl of Chesterfield
