  • One may be continually abusive without saying any thing just, but one cannot be always laughing at a man without now and then stumbling on something witty.
  • Whipping and abuse are like laudanum, you have to double the dose as the sensibilities decline.
  • An injury is much sooner forgotten than an insult.
  • I do not waste my time in answering abuse, I thrive under it like a field that benefits from manure.
  • We like so much to hear people talk of us and of our motives, that we are charmed even when they abuse us.
