    God help the horse, and the driver too!
    And the people and beasts who have never a friend!

    And the horse be me by a different end!
    And nobody knows how their days will cease!
    And the poor, when they’re old, have little of peace!
    —James Kenneth Stephens (1882–1950)

    The art of being wise is the art of knowing what to overlook.
    —William James (1842–1910)

    Among all the world’s races, some obscure Bedouin tribes possibly apart, Americans are the most prone to misinformation. This is not the consequence of any special preference for mendacity, although at the higher levels of their public administration that tendency is impressive. It is rather that so much of what they themselves believe is wrong.
    —John Kenneth Galbraith (b. 1908)

    Crouching down where nothing stirs
    In the silence of the furze,
    Crouching down again to brood
    In the sunny solitude.
    —James Kenneth Stephens (1882–1950)
