The way to work with a bully is to take the ball and go home. First time, every time. When there's no ball, there's no game. Bullies hate that. So they'll either behave so they can play with you or they'll go bully someone else.
You can never lose anything that really belongs to you, and you can't keep that which belongs to someone else.
I think a gentleman is someone who holds the comfort of other people above their own. The instinct to do that is inside every good man, I believe. The rules about opening doors and buying dinner and all of that other 'gentleman' stuff is a chess game, especially these days.
Refusing to ask for help when you need it is refusing someone the chance to be helpful.
One of the greatest victories you can gain over someone is to beat him at politeness.

The real joy is in constructing a sentence. But I see myself as an actor first because writing is what you do when you are ready and acting is what you do when someone else is ready.
Never interrupt someone doing what you said couldn't be done.
Solitude is fine, but you need someone to tell you that solitude is fine.
