I have two favorites by Sinclair Lewis; a writer that I somewhat enjoy reading his works even though our political leanings couldn't be further apart.

"There are two insults no human being will endure: that he has no sense of humor, and that he has never known trouble."

"Intellectually I know that America is no better than any other country; emotionally I know she is better than every other country."
