Young men's minds are always changeable, but when an old man is concerned in a matter, he looks both before and after.
Every man, however good he may be, has a yet better man dwelling in him, which is properly himself, but to whom nevertheless he is often unfaithful. It is to this interior and less mutable being that we should attach ourselves, not to be changeable, every-day man.
Wilhelm von Humboldt
A government, forever changing and changeable, is, indeed, in a state bordering upon anarchy and confusion.
I like to preserve simplicity rahter than over-polishing. Fashions are changeable. Taste is in realizing the essence of a place.
