Wisdom from Polonius

Odgen Nash

"To keep your marriage brimming, With love in the loving cup, Whenever
you're wrong, admit it; Whenever you're right, shut up."

Henri Frederic Amiel

"Life is short.  Be swift to love!  Make haste to be kind!"

An Irish Blessing

"May those who love us love us,
And those who don't love us
May God turn their hearts,
And if he doesn't turn their hearts
May he turn their ankles
So we'll know them
By their limping."

Jonathan Swift

"I have ever hated all nations, professions, and communities, and all my love is towards
individuals. . . .  But principally I hate and detest that animal called man, although I heartily love John, Peter, Thomas, and so forth."

Pablo Casals

"The love of one's country is a splendid thing. But why should love stop at the border."
