From the June 30, 1907 NYT:
In some circles a gentleman is a man who gets drunk with a dress suit on. He who has implicit faith in his fellow man is apt to lose that faith with his umbrella. We all appreciate the good things of life; but few of us want to be the "good things." The egoist is the first to recognize egotism in those who pay no attention to him. A man is a failure when he is willing to sell his experience for less than he paid for it. There's a lot of difference between what we think we know and what we know we think. When a fellow has money to burn, it is natural for the rest of us to make light of his fortune. Old friends are like old shoes. They are very comfortable, but we are sometimes ashamed of their shabbiness.
