"To be trusted is a greater compliment than to be loved."

"We are often unable to tell people what they need to know because they want to know something else."

"The best thing you can do for your fellow, next to rousing his conscience, is not to give him things to think about, but to wake things up that are in him; or say, to make him think things for himself." (The Fantastic Imagination)
