Zitat des Tages von Austin O'Malley:
When you are dealing with a child, keep all your wits about you, and sit on the floor.
The smaller the head, the bigger the dream.
Practical prayer is harder on the soles of your shoes than on the knees of your trousers.
Show me a genuine case of platonic friendship, and I shall show you two old or homely faces.
Happiness is the harvest of a quiet eye.
A home-made friend wears longer than one you buy in the market.
The statesman shears the sheep; the politician skins them.
God shows his contempt for wealth by the kind of person he selects to receive it.
An Englishmen thinks seated; a Frenchmen standing; an American pacing, an Irishman, afterwards.
The worst misfortune that can happen to an ordinary man is to have an extraordinary father.
Reason clears and plants the wilderness of the imagination to harvest the wheat of art.
Before you beat a child, be sure yourself are not the cause of the offense.
In levying taxes and in shearing sheep it is well to stop when you get down to the skin.
A hole is nothing at all, but you can break your neck in it.
If you keep your mouth shut you will never put your foot in it.
A pint of sweat will save a gallon of blood.
