The lapse of ages changes all things - time, language, the earth, the bounds of the sea, the stars of the sky, and every thing "about around and underneath" man, except man himself.

Maidens like moths are ever caught by glare, And Mammon wins his way where seraphs might despair.

Absence - that common cure of love.

For truth is always strange, stranger than fiction.

The English winter - ending in July, To recommence in August.

Oh! too convincing - dangerously dear - In woman's eye the unanswerable tear!

He who is only just is cruel. Who on earth could live were all judged justly.

Imagination droops her pinion.

Though women are angels, yet wedlock's the devil

Then stirs the feeling infinite so felt, In solitude where we are least alone.

Let none think to fly the danger, for soon or late love is his own avenger.

I'll publish right or wrong: Fools are my theme, let satire be my song.

To fly from need not be to hate mankind: All are not fit with them to stir and toil, Nor is it discontent to keep the mind, Deep in its fountain.

History is the devil's scripture

What a strange thing man is, and what a stranger thing woman.

For pleasures past I do not grieve nor perils gathering near, My greatest grief is that I leave nothing that claims a tear.

We are all selfish, and I no more trust myself than others with a good motive.

Wives in their husbands' absences grow subtler, and daughters sometimes run off with the butler.

It is not for minds like ours to give or to receive flatter, yet the praises of sincerity have ever been permitted to the voice of friendship.

Man being reasonable must get drunk, the best of life is but intoxication.
