Wisdom from Polonius


Mark Twain

"When I was a boy of 14, my father was so ignorant I could hardly stand to have the old man around.  But when I got to be 21, I was astonished at how much the old man had learned in seven years."


Margaret Courtney

"Be kind to thy father, for when thou wert young,
Who loved thee so fondly as he?
He caught the first accents that fell from thy tongue,
And joined in thy innocent glee."


Simeon Strunsky

"No man is really depraved who can spend half an hour by himself on the floor playing with his little boy's electric train."


George Herbert

"One father is more than a hundred school-masters."
