11 Gold Quotes from Literature

"The real alchemy consists in being able to turn gold back again into something else; and that's the secret that most of your friends have lost." ~ The House of Mirth by Edith Wharton Hunters for gold or pursuers of fame, they all had gone out on that stream, bearing the sword, and often the torch, messengers of the might within the land, bearers of a spark from the sacred fire. What greatness had not floated on the ebb of that river into the mystery of an unknown earth!... The dreams of men, the seed of commonwealths, the germs of empires. ~ Heart of Darkness by Joseph Conrad Unlike the gold which needed nothing, and must be worshipped in close-locked solitude—which was hidden away from the daylight, was deaf to the song of birds, and started to no human tones—Eppie was a creature of endless claims and ever-growing desires, seeking and loving sunshine, and living sounds, and living movements; making trial of everything, with trust in new joy, and stirring the human kindness in all eyes that looked on her. ~ Silas Marner by George Eliot Velvet and gilding do not make a throne, nor gold and jewels a sceptre. It is a throne because the most exalted one sits there,—and a sceptre because the most mighty one wields it. ~ The Warden by Anthony Trollope "Bell, book, and candle, shall not drive me back,
When gold and silver becks me to come on." ~ King John by William Shakespeare You know well enough what I mean by youth and age;--something in the soul, which has no more to do with the color of the hair than the vein of gold in a rock has to do with the grass a thousand feet above it. ~ The Autocrat of the Breakfast Table by Oliver Wendell Holmes, Sr. "A man can well afford to be as bold as brass, my good fellow, when he gets gold in exchange!" ~ Martin Chuzzlewit by Charles Dickens Gold, for the instant, lost its lustre in his eyes, for there were countless treasures of the heart which it could never purchase. ~ Nicholas Nickleby by Charles Dickens For gold conjures up a mist about a man, more destructive of all his old senses and lulling to his feelings than the fumes of charcoal. ~ Nicholas Nickleby by Charles Dickens "I was helping Uncle Sam to make dollars. Maybe mine were not as good gold as his, but they looked as well and were cheaper to make." ~ The Valley of Fear by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle
