Genius might be described as a supreme capacity for getting its possessors into trouble of all kinds.
A genius can never expect to have a good time anywhere, if he is a genuine article, but America is about the last place in which life will be endurable at all for an inspired writer of any kind.
Every one is a genius, more or less. No one is so physically sound that no part of him will be even a little unsound, and no one is so diseased but that some part of him will be healthy - so no man is so mentally and morally sound, but that he will be in part both mad and wicked and no man is so mad and wicked but he will be sensible and honourable in part. In like manner there is no genius who is not also a fool, and no fool who is not also a genius.
Friendship is like money, easier made than kept.
It has been said that the love of money is the root of all evil. The want of money is so quite as truly.

Money is the last enemy that shall never be subdued. While there is flesh there is money - or the want of money but money is always on the brain so long as there is a brain in reasonable order.
The want of money is the root of all evil.
