Previous Section   165. SUCCESS OF APHORISMS   Next Section

Success of Aphorisms.  The inexperienced, when an aphorism at once illuminates their minds with its naked truth, always think that it is old and well known.  They look askance at the author, as if he had wanted to steal the common property of all, whereas they enjoy highly spiced half-truths, and give the author to understand as much.  He knows how to appreciate the hint, and easily guesses thereby where he has succeeded and failed.
