"Hot hate is twin brother to hot love." ~ Sir Nigel by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle "The power of doing anything with quickness is always prized much by the possessor, and often without any attention to the imperfection of the performance." ~ Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen By this, he seemed to mean, not only that the most reliable and useful courage was that which arises from the fair estimation of the encountered peril, but that an utterly fearless man is a far more dangerous comrade than a coward. ~ Moby Dick by Herman Melville Ignorance is the parent of fear. ~ Moby Dick by Herman Melville It is safer to accept any chance that offers itself, and extemporize a procedure to fit it, than to get a good plan matured, and wait for a chance of using it. ~ Far From The Madding Crowd by Thomas Hardy "There is no deception now, Mr. Weller. Tears," said Job, with a look of momentary slyness, "tears are not the only proofs of distress, nor the best ones." ~ The Pickwick Papers by Charles Dickens It is an old prerogative of kings to govern everything but their passions. ~ The Pickwick Papers by Charles Dickens "Ah," said Dolly, with soothing gravity, "it's like the night and the morning, and the sleeping and the waking, and the rain and the harvest--one goes and the other comes, and we know nothing how nor where. We may strive and scrat and fend, but it's little we can do arter all--the big things come and go wi' no striving o' our'n--they do, that they do." ~ Silas Marner by George Eliot A man will tell you that he has worked in a mine for forty years unhurt by an accident as a reason why he should apprehend no danger, though the roof is beginning to sink. ~ Silas Marner by George Eliot The world is a looking-glass, and gives back to every man the reflection of his own face. Frown at it, and it will in turn look sourly upon you; laugh at it and with it, and it is a jolly kind companion; and so let all young persons take their choice. ~ Vanity Fair by William Makepeace Thackeray
