The imbecility of men is always inviting the impudence of power. - Ralph Waldo Emerson
Gossip is always a personal confession of malice or imbecility; it is a low, frivolous, and too often a dirty business. There are neighborhoods where it rages like a pest; churches are split in pieces by it, and neighbor made enemies for life. Let the young avoid or cure it while they may.
IMBECILITY, n. A kind of divine inspiration, or sacred fire affecting censorious critics of this dictionary. - Ambrose Bierce
I do not take advice or listen to the words of hypocrites or beings that are not self-realized. It's nothing personal. I am simply no fan of beings that try to sound wise, while trying to mask their imbecility. - Lionel Suggs
