Since I've got quite a few days to make up for, I'll post a few:

"If you talk to a man in a language he understands, that goes to his head. If you talk to him in his language, that goes to his heart."
--Nelson Mandela

"I moved a lot when I was young & I still ache a bit at the thought of all those autumns in new & unfamiliar landscapes."
--Brian Andreas

"In defense of my opening my soul and laying it bare to the public gaze in this fashion, I say that it seems to me that we really seldom do anybody much good excepting as we share the deepest experiences of our souls in this way. It is not the fashion to tell your inmost thoughts, but there are many wrong fashions, and concealment of the best of us is wrong. I disapprove of the usual practive of talking "small talk" whenever we meet, and holding a veil over our souls. If we are so impoverished that we have nothing to reveal but small talk, then we need to struggle for more richness of the soul. As for me, I am convinced that this spiritual pilgrimage which I am making is infinitely worthwhile, the most important thing I know of to talk about. And talk I shall while there is anybody to listen."
--Frank Laubach
