Famous quotes containing the word secret:

    In most of mankind gratitude is merely a secret hope of further favors.
    François, Duc De La Rochefoucauld (1613–1680)

    The great secret of succeeding in conversation is to admire little, to hear much; always to distrust our own reason, and sometimes that of our friends; never to pretend to wit, but to make that of others appear as much as possibly we can; to hearken to what is said and to answer to the purpose.
    Benjamin Franklin (1706–1790)

    The secret of a leader lies in the tests he has faced over the whole course of his life and the habit of action he develops in meeting those tests.
    Gail Sheehy (b. 1937)
