When I consider life, 'tis all a cheat. Yet, fooled by hope, men favour the deceit; trust on, and think to-morrow will repay: to-morrow's falser than the former day.
Quote by John Dryden
Love works a different way in different minds, the fool it enlightens and the wise...
Ill habits gather unseen degrees, as brooks make rivers, rivers run to seas.
Drinking is the soldier's pleasure.
Seek not to know what must not be reveal, for joy only flows where fate...
Never was patriot yet, but was a fool.
Beauty, like ice, our footing does betray; Who can tread sure on the smooth, slippery...
They that possess the prince possess the laws.
What passions cannot music raise or quell?
He has not learned the first lesson of life who does not every day surmount...
Every age has a kind of universal genius, which includes those that live in it...
And plenty makes us poor.
All heiresses are beautiful.
None but the brave deserves the fair.
Great wits are sure to madness near allied - And thin partitions do their bounds...
They can conquer who believe they can
For Art may err, but Nature cannot miss.
Genius must be born, and never can be taught.
Forgiveness to the injured does belong; but they ne'er pardon who have done wrong.
Fool that I was, upon my eagle's wings I bore this wren, till I was...
Self-defence is Nature's eldest law.
