Security is an insipid thing, and the overtaking and possessing of a wish discovers the folly of the chase." ~ Love for Love by William Congreve "He that first cries out stop thief is often he that has stol'n the treasure." ~ Love for Love by William Congreve "Fame is a pearl many dive for and only a few bring up. Even when they do, it is not perfect, and they sigh for more, and lose better things in struggling for them." ~ Jo's Boys by Louisa May Alcott What the eye does not see, the stomach does not get upset over. ~ Three Men in a Boat by Jerome K. Jerome But the cloud never comes in that quarter of the horizon from which we watch for it. ~ North and South by Elizabeth Gaskell "No one is ever too old to do a foolish thing." ~ Uncle Silas by J. Sheridan Le Fanu 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 "Discontent is the first step in the progress of a man or a nation." ~ A Woman of No Importance by Oscar Wilde "Heat not a furnace for your foe so hot
That it do singe yourself." ~ Henry VIII by William Shakespeare The mind is its own place, and in it self
Can make a Heaven of Hell, a Hell of Heaven. ~ Paradise Lost by John Milton
