William James.

There is no worse lie than a truth misunderstood by those who hear it.

We want all our friends to tell us our bad qualities; it is only the particular ass that does so whom we can't tolerate.

Each of us literally chooses, by his way of attending to things, what sort of universe he shall appear to himself to inhabit

Every man who possibly can should force himself to a holiday of a full month in a year, whether he feels like taking it or not.

To give up pretensions is as blessed a relief as to get them gratified.

A great many people think they are thinking when they are merely rearranging their prejudices.

William James.

Очень многие люди думают,что они выражают свое личное мнение, когда в действительности же они просто меняют свои предубеждения.
Уильям Джеймс.

 Дисклеймер: Вообще-то   "передвигают с места на место"  будет более правильным переводом.
