"Half the trouble in life is caused by pretending there isn't any." ~ The House of Mirth by Edith Wharton Before Selden left college he had learned that there are as many different ways of going without money as of spending it. ~ The House of Mirth by Edith Wharton As the pain that can be told is but half a pain, so the pity that questions has little healing in its touch. ~ The House of Mirth by Edith Wharton "But science, like the spear of Achilles, can cure the wounds which herself inflicts." ~ The Disentanglers by Andrew Lang "There is many a young cockerel that will stand upon a dunghill and crow about his father, by way of making his own plumage to shine." ~ Cousin Phillis by Elizabeth Gaskell But Duty has a trick of behaving unexpectedly--something like a heavy friend whom we have amiably asked to visit us, and who breaks his leg within our gates. ~ Middlemarch by George Eliot "Yet not a hundred people in that battle knew for what they fought, or why; not a hundred of the inconsiderate rejoicers in the victory, why they rejoiced. Not half a hundred people were the better for the gain or loss. Not half-a-dozen men agree to this hour on the cause or merits; and nobody, in short, ever knew anything distinct about it, but the mourners of the slain. " ~ The Battle of Life by Charles Dickens "Just breathing isn't living!" ~ Pollyanna by Eleanor H. Porter Few people can resist doing what is universally expected of them. This invisible pressure is more difficult to stand against than individual tyranny. ~ That Fortune by Charles Dudley Warner "Men's lives are as thoroughly blended with each other as the air they breathe: evil spreads as necessarily as disease." ~ Adam Bede by George Eliot
