PinkMonkey® Quotations on . . .
QUOTATION: Reader, I married him.
QUOTATION: Consistency, madam, is the first of Christian duties.
QUOTATION: Youpoor and obscure, and small and plain as you areI
entreat to accept me as a husband.
QUOTATION: If you are cast in a different mould to the majority, it is
no merit of yours: Nature did it.
QUOTATION: Feeling without judgement is a washy draught indeed; but judgement
untempered by feeling is too bitter and husky a morsel for human deglutition.
QUOTATION: It is vain to say human beings ought to be satisfied with
tranquillity: they must have action; and they will make it if they cannot
QUOTATION: Prejudices, it is well known, are most difficult to eradicate
from the heart whose soil has never been loosened or fertilized by education;
they grow there, firm as weeds among stones.
QUOTATION: Something of vengeance I had tasted for the first time; as
aromatic wine it seemed, on swallowing, warm and racy: its after- flavour,
metallic and corroding, gave me a sensation as if I had been poisoned.
QUOTATION: Conventionality is not morality. Self-righteousness is not
religion. To attack the first is not to assail the last. To pluck the
mask from the face of the Pharisee is not to lift an impious hand to the
Crown of Thorns.
QUOTATION: One does not jump, and spring, and shout hurrah! at hearing
one has got a fortune, one begins to consider responsibilities, and to
ponder business; on a base of steady satisfaction rise certain grave cares,
and we contain ourselves, and brood over our bliss with a solemn brow.
