The MMOB Daily Quote - Christopher Morley

Today's MMOB Daily Quote focuses on notable American writer Christopher Morley (May 5, 2890 - March 28, 1957).

For a quick background on Mr. Morley, check out out
He Makes the Rest of Us Seem Like Slackers from The Baltimore Literary Heritage Project.

“When you sell a man a book, you don't sell him 12 ounces of paper and ink and glue - you sell him a whole new life.”

“The courage of the poet is to keep ajar the door that leads into madness”

“We call a child's mind "small" simply by habit; perhaps it is larger than ours is, for it can take in almost anything without effort”

“Read, every day, something no one else is reading. Think, everyday, something no one else is thinking. Do, every day, something no one else would be silly enough to do. It is bad for the mind to continually be part of unanimity.”

“The real purpose of books is to trap the mind into doing its own thinking.”

“High heels were invented by a woman who had been kissed on the forehead.”

“No one appreciates the very special genius of your conversation as the dog does”

“A man who has never made a woman angry is a failure in life.”

“There are three ingredients to the good life; learning, earning, and yearning.”

Cheers! - Jason
