APHORISMS
[ Also see Anecdotes Apothegms Epigrams Maxims Proverbs (General) Quotations ]

Collect as precious pearls the words of the wise and virtuous.
      - Abd-el-Kader (Kadir)

An aphorism is true where it has fixed the impression of a genuine experience.
      - Francis H. Bradley

Exclusively of the abstract sciences, the largest and worthiest portion of our knowledge consists of aphorisms, and the greatest, and best of men is but an aphorism.
      - Samuel Taylor Coleridge

We endeavor to stuff the universe into the gullet of an aphorism.
      - Paul Eldridge

I fancy mankind may come in time to write all aphoristically, except in narration; grow weary of preparation and connection and illustration, and all those arts by which a big book is made.
      - Samuel Johnson (a/k/a Dr. Johnson) ("The Great Cham of Literature")

Someone who can write aphorisms should not fritter away his time in essays.
      - Karl Kraus

If these little sparks of holy fire which I have thus heaped up together do not give life to your prepared and already enkindled spirit, yet they will sometimes help to entertain a thought, to actuate a passion, to employ and hallow a fancy.
      - Jeremy Taylor
