6 Common Sense Quotes from Literature

I always lacked common sense when taken by surprise. ~ Agnes Grey by Anne Bronte "Nowadays most people die of a sort of creeping common sense, and discover when it is too late that the only things one never regrets are one's mistakes." ~ The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde "Science is a first-rate piece of furniture for a man's upper chamber, if he has common sense on the ground-floor." ~ The Poet at the Breakfast Table by Oliver Wendell Holmes, Sr. "I don't profess to be profound; but I do lay claim to common sense." ~ David Copperfield by Charles Dickens Dombey and Son had often dealt in hides, but never in hearts. They left that fancy ware to boys and girls, and boarding-schools and books. Mr. Dombey would have reasoned: That a matrimonial alliance with himself must, in the nature of things, be gratifying and honourable to any woman of common sense. That the hope of giving birth to a new partner in such a house, could not fail to awaken a glorious and stirring ambition in the breast of the least ambitious of her sex. ~ Dombey and Son by Charles Dickens "Our young friend makes up for many obvious mental lacunae by some measure of primitive common sense," remarked Challenger. ~ The Lost World by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle
