Excerpt from A Dictionary of Thoughts

Tillotson has said, speaking of the brief and noticeably striking sayings of Wise and good men: They are of great value, like the dust of gold, or the sparks of diamonds. Johnson counts him a benefactor of man kind who condenses the great thoughts and rules of life into short sentences that are easily impressed on the memory, and recur promptly to the mind. Swift compares such thoughts to burning glasses, as they collect the diffused rays of wit and learning in authors, and make them point with warmth and quickness on the reader's imagination.
