A noble heart cannot suspect in others the pettiness and malice that it has never felt.
There is something in every one of you that waits and listens for the sound of the genuine in yourself. It is the only true guide you will ever have. And if you cannot hear it, you will all of your life spend your days on the ends of strings that somebody else pulls.
Love and a cough cannot be hid.
If you cannot learn to love real art, at least learn to hate sham art and reject it.

Charles Horton Cooley
