16 Rules Quotes from Literature

"Like the British Constitution, she owes her success in practice to her inconsistencies in principle." ~ The Hand of Ethelberta by Thomas Hardy "You wanted to look at life for yourself--but you were not allowed; you were punished for your wish. You were ground in the very mill of the conventional!" ~ The Portrait of a Lady by Henry James It is one of my rules in life, never to notice what I don't understand. ~ The Moonstone by Wilkie Collins The plain rule is to do nothing in the dark, to be a party to nothing underhanded or mysterious, and never to put his foot where he cannot see the ground. ~ Bleak House by Charles Dickens "Every man should have laws of his own, I should think; commandments of his own, for every man has a different set of circumstances wherein to work--or worry." ~ The Translation of a Savage by Gilbert Parker But her correctness was of the finer sort, and had no air of being studied or achieved; conduct would never offer her a problem to be settled from a book of rules, for the rules were so deep within her that she was unconscious of them. ~ Alice Adams by Booth Tarkington "As a rule," said Holmes, "the more bizarre a thing is the less mysterious it proves to be. It is your commonplace, featureless crimes which are really puzzling, just as a commonplace face is the most difficult to identify." ~ The Red-Headed League by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle "Here's the rule for bargains. 'Do other men, for they would do you.' That's the true business precept." ~ Martin Chuzzlewit by Charles Dickens It is in the uncompromisingness with which dogma is held and not in the dogma or want of dogma that the danger lies. ~ The Way of All Flesh by Samuel Butler "I never make exceptions. An exception disproves the rule." ~ The Sign of The Four by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle
