The Lost Childhood and Other Essays

From the personal prologue- Perhaps it is only in childhood that books have any deep influence on our lives. In later lives we admire, we are entertained, we may modify some views we already hold, but we are more likely to find in books merely a confirmation of what is in our minds already: as in a love affair it is our own features that we see reflected flatteringly back.

Graham Greene

Adversidad
La desgracia, como la piedad, suele terminar haciéndose hábito.
Edad
En el fondo de nosotros mismos siempre tenemos la misma edad.
Poder
No puede uno confiarse a sus superiores cuando ha triunfado donde ellos fracasaron.
Triunfo
No puede uno confiarse a sus superiores cuando ha triunfado donde ellos fracasaron.
