Four quotes by Marie von Ebner-Eschenbach

Baroness Marie von Ebner-Eschenbach (Czech: Marie von Ebner-Eschenbachová, German: Marie Freifrau von Ebner-Eschenbach; September 13, 1830 - March 12, 1916) was an Austrian writer. Noted for her excellent psychological novels, she is regarded —together with Ferdinand von Saar— as one of the most important German-language writers of the latter portion of the 19th century.
 Be the first to say what is self-evident and you are immortal. 
 Fear not those who argue but those who dodge. 
 Nowadays people are born to find fault; when they look at Achilles, they see only his heel. 
 The greatest leveler is politeness; it removes all class distinctions.
