Lord Chesterfield (September 22, 1694 - March 24, 1773)
Lord Chesterfield in Wikipedia
Be wiser than other people if you can; but do not tell them so.
If you are not in fashion, you are nobody.
Persist and persevere, and you will find most things that are attainable, possible.
The more one works, the more willing one is to work.
Wrongs are often forgiven, but contempt never is. Our pride remembers it forever.
You cannot lie ever, because a lie destroys the credibility of the product, and credibility is more important than anything. Credibility's even more important than clarity.
It's not going to be a parking lot that's just black asphalt.
The artist is nothing without the gift, but the gift is nothing without the work
