    Women who are either indisputably beautiful, or indisputably ugly, are best flattered upon the score of their understandings; but those who are in a state of mediocrity are best flattered upon their beauty, or at least their graces: for every woman who is not absolutely ugly, thinks herself handsome.
    Philip Dormer Stanhope, 4th Earl Chesterfield (1694–1773)

    Three score and ten.
    Can I get there by candlelight?
    Yes, and back again.
    Mother Goose (fl. 17th–18th century. How many miles to Babylon? (l. 1–4)

    Earthly minds, like mud walls, resist the strongest batteries: and though, perhaps, sometimes the force of a clear argument may make some impression, yet they nevertheless stand firm, and keep out the enemy, truth, that would captivate or disturb them. Tell a man passionately in love, that he is jilted; bring a score of witnesses of the falsehood of his mistress, it is ten to one but three kind words of hers shall invalidate all their testimonies.
    John Locke (1632–1704)
