Here is another page from The Frictionary:

647. We must never judge people on the company they keep. Judas, for example, had irreproachable friends. (Paul Verlaine)*
A similar quotation is sometimes attributed to Ernest Hemingway.

648. It is not certain that everything is uncertain. (Blaise Pascal)

649. Nobody can make feel inferior without your consent. (Eleanor Roosevelt)

650. Inflation is the one form of taxation that can be imposed without legislation. (Milton Friedman)

651. Desk: a wastebasket with drawers. (?)

652. Jealousy, like sickness, gets worse when night falls. (Paul Léautaud)

653. All photographs are accurate. None of them is the truth. (Richard Avedon)

654. There is only one way to achieve happiness on this terrestrial ball,
And that is to have either a clear conscience or none at all. (Ogden Nash)
