Colors are the smiles of nature.
If you ever have to support a flagging conversation, introduce the topic of eating.
Music is the medicine of the breaking heart.
Sympathizing and selfish people are alike, both given to tears.
It is books that teach us to refine our pleasures when young, and to recall them with satisfaction when we are old.
