Carol Nelson Quote
In the Beauty of the Lilies (1996)
“To speak ill of others is a dishonest way of praising ourselves; let us be above such transparent egotism. If you can't say good and encouraging things, say nothing. Nothing is often a good thing to do, and always a clever thing to say.”
Durant, Will. Commencement Speech. We Have a Right To Be Happy Today. Webb School of Claremont, CA. 7 Jun 1958.
Born: October 8, 1937 (age 80)
