I have almost done with harridans, and shall soon become old enough to fall in love with girls of fourteen
Quote by Jonathan Swift
Flattery is the worst and falsest way of showing our esteem
A nice man is a man of nasty ideas.
Books, the children of the brain.
A wise man should have money in his head, but not in his heart.
It is the folly of too many to mistake the echo of a London coffee-house...
The power of fortune is confessed only by the miserable, for the happy impute all...
Politics, as the word is commonly understood, are nothing but corruptions.
Blessed is he who expects nothing, for he shall never be disappointed.
Promises and pie-crust are made to be broken.
May you live all the days of your life.
The stoical scheme of supplying our wants by lopping off our desires, is like cutting...
Better belly burst than good liquor be lost.
Some people take more care to hide their wisdom, than their folly.
We have just enough religion to make us hate, but not enough to make us...
There were many times my pants were so thin I could sit on a dime...
Everybody wants to live forever, but nobody wants to grow old.
Most sorts of diversion in men, children and other animals, are in imitation of fighting.
I wonder what fool it was that first invented kissing.
Every dog must have his day.
There are few, very few, that will own themselves in a mistake.
