Letter "A" » Anecdotes
«If you have an anecdote from one source, you file it away. If you hear it again, it may be true. Then the more times you hear it the less likely it is to be true.»
«Anecdotes are sometimes the best vehicles of truth, and if striking and appropriate, are often more impressive and powerful than argument»
«A collection of anecdotes and maxims is the greatest of treasures for the man of the world, for he knows how to intersperse conversation with the former in fit places, and to recollect the latter on proper occasions»
