Display no learning, and affect no wit;
They hazard nothing, nothing they assume,
But know the useful ART of acting dumb.
G. Crabbe : Tales The Patron

Originality is the fine ART of remembering what you hear but forgetting where you heard it.
Laurence J. Peter

Honore de Balzac
Philosophy is the ART of living.
Poetry is the ART of uniting pleasure with truth.
Politeness is the ART of selecting among one’s real thoughts.
Madame De Stael

Procrastination is the ART of keeping up with yesterday.
– the ART of keeping up with yesterday.
Punishment brings wisdom; it is the healing ART of
Roseleaves, when the rose is dead,
Are heaped for the beloved’s bed;
And so thy thoughts, when thou ART gone,
Love itself shall slumber on.
Science and ART belong to the whole world, and before
them, vanish the barriers of nationality.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
Silence is one great ART of conversation.
