Read in October, 1998

'There is no time in our lives when we are so conspicuously without mercy as in adolescence'
'How much joy do we miss through cowardice?'
'Confusing frankness with honesty.'
'It made me marvel that someone young and fit was prepared to forego so many pleasures rather than work'.
'There is a limit, said Henry James, to the impunity with which we can juggle with truth'
