When I Cannot

A   L   O   H   A !
The well bred 
contradict other people. 
The wise contradict 
             Oscar Wilde

Poets utter great 

and wise things 

which they do not 

themselves understand. 


That is a good question 

for you to ask, not a 

wise question for 

me to answer. 

           Anthony Eden

I endeavor to be wise

when I cannot be merry,

easy when I cannot be glad,

content with what cannot be mended

and patient when there be 

no redress.

Elizabeth Montagu

The only hope of preserving 

what is best, lies in the 

practice of an immense charity, 

a wide tolerance, a sincere respect

for opinions that are not ours.

Philip Gilbert Hamerton
