Whenever you feel like criticizing someone
Remember that not all people haven’t had the same advantages you’ve had
I’m inclined to reserve all judgments, a habit that opened up many curious natures to me
Also made me the victim of not a few veteran bores
Conduct may be founded
On the hard rock or the wet marshes
Reserving judgements is a matter of infinite hope
Dishonesty in a woman is a thing you never blame deeply
I am slow thinking and full of interior rules that act as brakes on my desires
There was a vague understanding that had to be tactfully broken off before I was free
I am one of the few honesty people I have ever known
I looked once more at them and they looked at me, remotely, possessed by intense life
No amount of fire or freshness can challenge what a man will store up in his ghostly heart
