Every once in a while, it is necessary that I give you a bunch of quotes that I have stumbled upon recently.

“How can a woman expect to be happy with a man who insists on treating her like a perfectly normal human being?” – Oscar Wilde

“You cannot teach a man anything; you can only help him discover it in himself.” – Galileo

“A man can be short and dumpy and getting bald but if he has fire, women will like him. ” – Mae West (This is a very good thing for me.)

“I believe in getting into hot water; it keeps you clean.” – G.K. Chesterton

“The men who really believe in themselves are all in lunatic asylums.” – G.K. Chesterton

“There is a notion adrift everywhere that imagination, especially mystical imagination, is dangerous to man’s mental balance. Poets are commonly spoken of as psychologically unreliable; and generally there is a vague association between wreathing laurels in your hair and sticking straws in it. Facts and history utterly contradict this view. Most of the very great poets have been not only sane, but extremely business-like; and if Shakespeare ever really held horses, it was because he was much the safest man to hold them. Imagination does not breed insanity. Exactly what does breed insanity is reason. Poets do not go mad; but chess-players do. Mathematicians go mad, and cashiers; but creative artists very seldom.” – G.K. Chesterton; Orthodoxy
