“Facts or opinions which are to pass through the hands of so many, to be misconceived by folly in one, and ignorance in another, can hardly have much truth left.” ~  Persuasion by Jane Austen

The fool wonders, the wise man asks. ~ Count Alarcos: A Tragedy by Benjamin Disraeli

Mrs. Bittacy rustled ominously, holding her peace meanwhile. She feared long words she did not understand. Beelzebub lay hid among too many syllables. ~ The Man Whom the Trees Loved by Algernon Blackwood

Silence is of different kinds, and breathes different meanings. ~ Villette by Charlotte Bronte
