I enjoy talking to you. Your mind appeals to me. It resembles my own mind except that you happen to be insane.
To talk, simply to talk! It sounds so little, and how much it is! When you have existed to the brink of middle age in bitter loneliness, among people to whom your true opinion on every subject on earth is blasphemy, the need to talk is the greatest of all needs.
There is only one thing in the world worse than being talked about, and that is not being talked about.
There are many tongues to talk, and but few heads to think.[Il y a beaucoup de bouches qui parlent et fort peu de têtes qui pensent.]
People have to talk about something just to keep their voice boxes in working order, so they’ll have good voice boxes in case there’s ever anything really meaningful to say.
