Leather Address Books

Famous quotes containing the words books, leather and/or address:

    The best way to teach a child restraint and generosity is to be a model of those qualities yourself. If your child sees that you want a particular item but refrain from buying it, either because it isn’t practical or because you can’t afford it, he will begin to understand restraint. Likewise, if you donate books or clothing to charity, take him with you to distribute the items to teach him about generosity.
    Lawrence Balter (20th century)

    Cant is always rather nauseating; but before we condemn political hypocrisy, let us remember that it is the tribute paid by men of leather to men of God, and that the acting of the part of someone better than oneself may actually commit one to a course of behaviour perceptibly less evil than what would be normal and natural in an avowed cynic.
    Aldous Huxley (1894–1963)

    The English, the plain English, of the politest address of a gentleman to a lady is, “I am now, dear Madam, your humble servant: Pray be so good as to let me be your Lord and Master.”
    Samuel Richardson (1689–1761)
