A man gazing on the stars is proverbially at the mercy of the puddles in the road. ALEXANDER SMITH

A man's real possession is his memory. In nothing else is he rich, in nothing else is he poor. ALEXANDER SMITH

To be occasionally quoted is the only fame I care for. ALEXANDER SMITH

Every man's road in life is marked by the grave of his personal likings. ALEXANDER SMITH

Your death and my death are mainly of importance to ourselves. The black plumes will be stripped off our hearses within the hour; tears will dry, hurt hearts close again, our graves grow level with the church-yard, and although we are away, the world wags on. It does not miss us; and those who are near us, when the first strangeness of vacancy wears off, will not miss us much either. ALEXANDER SMITH

If you wish to make a man look noble, your best course is to kill him. What superiority he may have inherited from his race, what superiority nature may have personally gifted him with, comes out in death. ALEXANDER SMITH

I go into my library, and all history unrolls before me. I breathe the morning air of the world while the scent of Eden's roses yet lingered in it, while it vibrated only to the world's first brood of nightingales, and to the laugh of Eve. I see the pyramids building; I hear the shoutings of the armies of Alexander. ALEXANDER SMITH

The world is not so much in need of new thoughts as that when thought grows old and worn with usage it should, like current coin, be called in, and, from the mint of genius, reissued fresh and new. ALEXANDER SMITH

In life there is nothing more unexpected and surprising than the arrivals and departures of pleasure. If we find it in one place today, it is vain to seek it there tomorrow. You can not lay a trap for it. ALEXANDER SMITH

I go into my library and all history unrolls before me. ALEXANDER SMITH
