Dubious Source: Crome Yellow[edit]

The first quote is not from Crome Yellow as can be verified by searching the full text: http://www.gutenberg.org/files/1999/1999-h/1999-h.htm.

Also it seems to be more of a intended exaggerated satire said by a despicable character in a novel than a real quote of what the author intends to express.

Older source[edit]

"It is a bit embarrassing to have been concerned with the human problem all one's life and find at the end that one has no more to offer by way of advice than 'Try to be a little kinder.'" this was quoted by Jay Stevens in Storming Heaven: LSD and the American Dream (1987) p.141
