There is nothing as dull as an intellectual ally after a certain age.
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.

Of the things men give each other the greatest is loyalty.
The only practical way yet discovered by the world for curing its ills is to forget about them.
