„I know, that obscure as I am, my name is making a considerable deal of fuss in the world.“

—  Davy Crockett American politician 1786 - 1836
Context: I know, that obscure as I am, my name is making a considerable deal of fuss in the world. I can't tell why it is, nor in what it is to end. Go where I will, everybody seems anxious to get a peep at me … There must therefore be something in me, or about me, that attracts attention, which is even mysterious to myself. Preface (1 February 1834)

„We ought to hate very rarely, as it is too fatiguing; remain indifferent to a great deal, forgive often and never forget.“

—  Sarah Bernhardt French actress 1844 - 1923
Context: Life is short, even for those who live a long time, and we must live for the few who know and appreciate us, who judge and absolve us, and for whom we have the same affection and indulgence. The rest I look upon as a mere crowd, lively or sad, loyal or corrupt, from whom there is nothing to be expected but fleeting emotions, either pleasant or unpleasant, which leave no trace behind them. We ought to hate very rarely, as it is too fatiguing; remain indifferent to a great deal, forgive often and never forget. Ch. 33 <!-- p. 369 -->
