"Passion is like the lightning, it is beautiful, and it links the earth to heaven, but alas it blinds!" ~ Allan Quatermain by H. Rider Haggard The law of England is much more severe upon offences against property than against the person, as becomes a people whose ruling passion is money. ~ Allan Quatermain by H. Rider Haggard "Adventurer" -- he that goes out to meet whatever may come. Well, that is what we all do in the world one way or another. ~ Allan Quatermain by H. Rider Haggard Men and women, empires and cities, thrones, principalities, and powers, mountains, rivers, and unfathomed seas, worlds, spaces, and universes, all have their day, and all must go. ~ Allan Quatermain by H. Rider Haggard Who has not in his great grief felt a longing to look upon the outward features of the universal Mother; to lie on the mountains and watch the clouds drive across the sky and hear the rollers break in thunder on the shore, to let his poor struggling life mingle for a while in her life; to feel the slow beat of her eternal heart, and to forget his woes . . . ~ Allan Quatermain by H. Rider Haggard Man's cleverness is almost indefinite, and stretches like an elastic band, but human nature is like an iron ring. You can go round and round it, you can polish it highly, you can even flatten it a little on one side, whereby you will make it bulge out the other, but you will NEVER, while the world endures and man is man, increase its total circumference. ~ Allan Quatermain by H. Rider Haggard Civilization is only savagery silver-gilt. ~ Allan Quatermain by H. Rider Haggard "Hard is it to die, because our delicate flesh doth shrink back from the worm it will not feel, and from that unknown which the winding-sheet doth curtain from our view. But harder still, to my fancy, would it be to live on, green in the leaf and fair, but dead and rotten at the core, and feel that other secret worm of recollection gnawing ever at the heart." ~ She by H. Rider Haggard "Let them be brought to the house of 'She-who-must-be-obeyed'. Bring forth the men, and let that which they have with them be brought forth also." ~ She by H. Rider Haggard At length the heralds and forerunners of the royal sun had done their work, and, searching out the shadows, had caused them to flee away. Then up he came in glory from his ocean-bed, and flooded the earth with warmth and light. ~ She by H. Rider Haggard
