- Let your boat of life be light, packed with only what you need - a homely home and simple pleasures, one or two friends worth the name, someone to love and someone to love you, a cat, a dog, and a pipe or two, enough to eat, enough to wear, and a little more than enough to drink; for thirst is a dangerous thing!
- It is not that I object to work; I like work; it fascinates me. I can sit and look at it for hours.
- Everything has its drawbacks, as the man said when his mother-in-law died, and they came down upon him for funeral expenses.
