There is in this world no real delight (excepting those of sensuality), but exchange of ideas in conversation.
Sensual pleasures are like soap bubbles, sparkling, effervescent. The pleasures of intellect are calm, beautiful, sublime, ever enduring and climbing upward to the borders of the unseen world.
Aughey, John H.
I have never known a man who was sensual in his youth, who was high-minded when old.
If sensuality were happiness, beasts were happier than men; but human felicity is lodged in the soul, not in the flesh.
There is nothing in the world more powerful than an idea. No weapon can destroy it; no power can conquer it except the power of another idea.
Smith, James R.
No one is qualified to converse in public except those contented to do without such conversation.
Ideal conversation must be an exchange of thought, and not, as many of those who worry most about their shortcomings believe, an eloquent exhibition of wit or oratory.
The real art of conversation is not only to say the right thing at the right place but to leave unsaid the wrong thing at the tempting moment.
After these conversations with Tagore some of the ideas that had seemed so crazy suddenly made much more sense. That was a great help for me.
Conversation. What is it? A Mystery! It's the art of never seeming bored, of touching everything with interest, of pleasing with trifles, of being fascinating with nothing at all. How do we define this lively darting about with words, of hitting them back and forth, this sort of brief smile of ideas which should be conversation?
Maupassant, Guy de
