Famous quotes containing the word telling:

    To make a man perfectly happy tell him he works too hard, that he spends too much money, that he is “misunderstood” or that he is “different”; none of this is necessarily complimentary, but it will flatter him infinitely more that merely telling him that he is brilliant, or noble, or wise, or good.
    Helen Rowland (1875–1950)

    These great and beautiful ships, imperceptibly rocking like waddling ducks on tranquil waters, these robust ships, with their idle and nostalgic air, aren’t they telling us in a silent tongue: When are we leaving for happiness?
    Charles Baudelaire (1821–1867)

    Unfortunately, mothers interpret the fact that they feel guilty to mean that they are guilty. Professionals have simply confirmed this interpretation by telling mothers why they are guilty.
    Elaine Heffner (20th century)
