	The experience gathered from books, though often valuable, 
	is but of the nature of learning; whereas, the experience gained 
	from actual life is of the nature of wisdom; and a small store 
	of the latter is worth vastly more than any stock of the former.
			-Samuel Smiles

	jokes and loud laughter reduce him to a buffoon.

	Next to God, we are indebted to women, first for life itself,

			--Mark Twain [Samuel Langhornne Clemens] (1835-1910)

	The man who never makes a mistake always takes orders from one who does.

	they have to say something.
