More wit and wisdom from Sydney Smith

He had occasional flashes of silence, that made his conversation perfectly delightful. referring to Macaulay

Never try to reason the prejudice out of a man. It was not reasoned into him, and cannot be reasoned out.

Have the courage to be ignorant of a great number of things, in order to avoid the calamity of being ignorant of everything.

What would the world do without tea? - how did it exist? I am glad I was not born before tea.
