Errors like straws upon the surface flow: Who would search for pearls must dive below
Quote by John Dryden
When he spoke, what tender words he used! So softly, that like flakes of feathered...
War, he sung, is toil and trouble; honour but an empty bubble.
All heiresses are beautiful.
Dancing is the poetry of the foot.
You see through love, and that deludes your sight, As what is straight seems crooked...
Beauty, like ice, our footing does betray; Who can tread sure on the smooth, slippery...
Love is love's reward.
What passions cannot music raise or quell?
It is madness to make fortune the mistress of events, because by herself she is...
Reason is a crutch for age, but youth is strong enough to walk alone.
What all your sex desire is Sovereignty
Ill habits gather unseen degrees, as brooks make rivers, rivers run to seas.
Tomorrow do thy worst, I have lived today.
Self-defence is Nature's eldest law.
Only man clogs his happiness with care, destroying what is with thoughts of what may...
God never made his work for man to mend.
For truth has such a face and such a mien, as to be loved needs...
Beware the fury of a patient man.
No one can be reasonable and angry at the same time
When angry, count ten before you speak; if very angry, an hundred.
