Flattery iz like ice-cream--to relish good we want it a little at a time, and often. The more yu praze a man who don't deserve it, the more yu abuze him. Yu kan't flatter a truly wize man--he knows just how much praze iz due him; that he takes, and charges over all the balance tew the proffit and loss ackount.
