Three more great quotes with references for those of us who like to ‘dote on scraps of learning’ as the last quoted suggests!

On reputations-

The very purpose of existence is to reconcile the glowing opinion we have of ourselves with the appalling things that other people think about us.
– Quentin Crisp

On Flattery-

He who praises you for what you lack wishes to take from you what you have.
– Don Juan Manuel

On using quotations-

Some for renown, on scraps of learning dote, /And think they grow immortal as they quote.
– Edward Young
