Great wits are sure to madness near allied - And thin partitions do their bounds divide
Quote by John Dryden
All, all of a piece throughout; Thy chase had a beast in view; Thy wars...
For truth has such a face and such a mien, as to be loved needs...
Ill habits gather unseen degrees, as brooks make rivers, rivers run to seas.
The intoxication of anger, like that of the grape, shows us to others, but hides...
All objects lose by too familiar a view.
Boldness is a mask for fear, however great.
More liberty begets desire of more; The hunger still increases with the store
Only man clogs his happiness with care, destroying what is, with thoughts of what may...
Dancing is the poetry of the foot.
They that possess the prince possess the laws.
Errors like straws upon the surface flow: Who would search for pearls must dive below
Love works a different way in different minds, the fool it enlightens and the wise...
God never made his work for man to mend.
Look round the habitable world, how few Know their own good, or, knowing it, pursue!
Pains of love be sweeter far than all other pleasures are.
Beauty, like ice, our footing does betray; Who can tread sure on the smooth, slippery...
War is the trade of kings.
Never was patriot yet, but was a fool.
There is a pleasure in being mad which none but madmen know.
A knock-down argument; 'tis but a word and a blow.
