Robert Frost: plain, strong, simple, and mean.

In describing someone's character, I reveal my own.
Arrogance frowns; pride smiles.
When you feel protective toward your parents, you have become an adult.
Nobody likes to offer stupidity as an excuse.
Profusion gives pleasure up to a point; then we become squeamish.
Modernism: the books are as hard to understand as life itself.

I am too impatient to wait for temptation to come to me.
