When you overpay small people you frighten them. They know that their merits or activities entitle them to no such sums as they are receiving. As a result their boss soars out of economic into magic significance. He becomes a source of blessings rather than wages. Criticism is sacrilege, doubt is heresy.
The only practical way yet discovered by the world for curing its ills is to forget about them.
There is nothing as dull as an intellectual ally after a certain age.
Of the things men give each other the greatest is loyalty.
