HENRY BROOKE
Irish political and miscellaneous writer
(1706 - 1783)

A book may be compared to the life of your neighbor. If it be good, it cannot last too long; if bad, you cannot get rid of it too early.
      - [Books]

A hero is--as though one should say--a man of high achievement, who performs famous exploits--who does things that are heroical, and in all his actions and demeanor is a hero indeed.
      - [Heroes]

Education, indeed, has made the fondness for fine things next to natural; the corals and bells teach infants on the breasts to be delighted with sound and glitter.
      - [Ostentation]

Fear never was a friend to the love of God or man, to duty or conscience, truth, probity, or honor. It therefore can ever make a good subject, a good citizen, or a good soldier, and, least of all, a good Christian; except the devils, who believe and tremble, are to be accounted good Christians.
      - [Fear]

God is all love; it is He who made everything, and He loves everything that He has made.
      - [God]

If there be a crime of deeper dye than all the guilty train of human vices, it is ingratitude.
      - [Ingratitude]

In the age of acorns, antecedent to Ceres and the loyal ploughman Triptolemus, a single barley-corn had been of more value to mankind than all the diamonds that glowed in the mines of India.
      - [Agriculture]

Man is by nature weak; he is born in and to a state of dependence; he therefore naturally seeks and looks about for help, and where he observes the greatest power, it is there that he applies and prays for protection.
      - [Man]

The worst of slaves is he whom passion rules.
      - [Passion]

. . . for righteous monarchs,
  Justly to judge, with their own eyes should see;
    To rule o'er freemen, should themselves be free.
      - Earl of Essex (act I) [Freedom]

Tyranny
  Absolves all faith; and who invades our rights,
    Howe'er his own commence, can never be
      But an usurper.
      - Gustavus Vasa (act IV, sc. 1) [Tyranny]
