MARIA EDGEWORTH
English children's author
(1767 - 1849)

A man who sells his conscience for his interest, will sell it for his pleasure. A man who will betray his country, will betray his friend.
      - [Conscience]

According to the Asiatics, Cupid's bow is strung with bees which are apt to sting, sometimes fatally, those who meddle with it.
      - [Cupid]

Beauty is a great gift of heaven; not for the purpose of female vanity, but a great gift for one who loves, and wishes to be beloved.
      - [Beauty]

Fortune's wheel never stands still the highest point is therefore the most perilous.
      - [Fortune]

It is unjust and absurd of persons advancing in years, to expect of the young that confidence should come all and only on their side; the human heart, at whatever age, opens only to the heart that opens in return.
      - [Confidence]

Nature's hasty conscience.
      - [Shame]

Some people talk of morality, and some of religion, but give me a little snug property.
      - [Property]

There are two sorts of content; one is connected with exertion, the other with habits of indolence. The first is a virtue; the other, a vice.
      - [Contentment]

There is no moment like the present; not only so, but, moreover, there is no moment at all,--that is, no instant force and energy, but in the present. The man who will not execute his resolutions when they are fresh upon him can have no hope from them afterwards.
      - [Procrastination]

We may make our future by the best use of the present. There is no moment like the present.
      - [Present]

All play and no work makes Jack a mere toy.
      - quoted by Henry and Lucy (vol. II) [Work]

Nature knows best, and she says, roar!
      - Ormond
         (ch. V, King Corny in a Paroxysm of the Gout)
        [Pain]

The bore is usually considered a harmless creature, or of that class of irrationa bipeds who hurt only themselves.
      - Thoughts on Bores [Bores]
