I assess the power of a will by how much resistance, pain, torture it endures and knows how to turn to its advantage.
Men have had every advantage of us in telling their own story. Education has been theirs in so much higher a degree; the pen has been in their hands. I will not allow books to prove anything.

P. G. Wodehouse

One advantage of marriage is that, when you fall out of love with him or he falls out of love with you, it keeps you together until you fall in again.

Henry B. Eyring
One advantage of talking to yourself is that you know at least somebody's listening.
Franklin P. Jones
