A man who is not a liberal at sixteen has no heart; a man who is not a conservative at sixty has no head.”   —   Disraeli

(Riiight.  Clearly, he said this as an old man, and head of the Conservative Party.  And, maybe things were a little different in the 1800s.  Today, there are more and more shades of gray.  We need to get away from silly labels anyway.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

The greatest good you can do for another is not just to share your riches but to reveal to him his own.”   —   Benjamin Disraeli

(Many of us need a hand up from time to time, but what is equally important is having that sense of self-worth.  No one wants to feel like a charity case.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

It destroys one’s nerves to be amiable every day to the same human being.”   —   Benjamin Disraeli

Never apologize for showing feeling.  When you do so, you apologize for truth.”   —   B. Disraeli

(Kind of goes against the whole “stiff upper lip” mentality.  But, honest – and hopefully *appropriate* – displays of feeling should not be frowned upon.  It’s 7/11, kids.  Enjoy a Slurpee, today!  Oops!  Too soon!)   —   YUR

The greatest misfortune that ever befell man was the invention of printing.”   —   Benjamin Disraeli

(Curious!  I have to wonder, in what context did old Ben make such a statement?)   —   YUR

Like all great travelers, I have seen more than I remember, and remember more than I have seen.”   — Benjamin Disraeli

(As anti-Semitic as England was, at that time, it is truly amazing that this man achieved such heights of greatness.  Remarkable!)   — YUR

Seeing much, suffering much, and studying much are the three pillars of learning.”   — Benjamin Disraeli

I think that pain and suffering go more towards building character, than to learning.  Suffering greatly tends to obscure objectivity, which can only hinder true learning. —   YUR
