Warn Quotations

I would venture to warn against too great intimacy with artists as it is very seductive and a little dangerous.
Queen Victoria

What a circus act we women perform every day of our lives. Look at us. We run a tightrope daily, balancing a pile of books on the head. Baby-carriage, parasol, kitchen chair, still under control. Steady now! This is not the life of simplicity but the life of multiplicity that the wise men warn us of.
Anne Morrow Lindbergh

Support the strong, give courage to the timid, remind the indifferent, and warn the opposed.
