After all, in private we’re all misfits.
The secret of being a bore is to tell everything.
When a poor man knocks at your door and says, "I'm hungry," and your first thought is Why can't you get a job?, you've invaded his privacy. Why would you need to know why he can't get a job? He didn't come to discuss his inabilities or bad habits; he came to discuss his hunger. If you want to do something about it, feed him.
Some secrets are meant to stay secret forever.

Success usually occurs in private, while failure occurs in full view.
