Commonplaces

Piquant excerpts lifted from Touchstone editors' own reading & listening.



There are three idealists: God, mothers and poets!
They don't seek the ideal in completed things—
They find it in the incomplete.


There are only two things that can destroy a healthy man: love trouble, ambition, and financial catastrophe. And that's already three things, and there are a lot more.

Peter Altenberg
(1859-1919)
