EDWARD HERBERT, 1ST BARON HERBERT OF CHERBURY
English philosopher, historian, poet and diplomatist
(1583 - 1648)

A good rider on a good horse is as much above himself and others as the world can make him.
      - [Horsemanship]

He that cannot forgive others breaks the bridge over which he must pass himself; for every man has need to be forgiven.
      - [Forgiveness]

In oratory affectation must be avoided; it being better for a man by a native and clear eloquence to express himself than by those words which may smell either of the lamp or inkhorn.
      - [Eloquence]

The exercises I wholly condemn are dicing and carding, especially if you play for any great sum of money, or spend any time in them, or use to come to meetings in dicing-houses, where cheaters meet and cozen young gentlemen out of all their money.
      - [Gambling]

Whoever considers the study of anatomy, I believe, will never be an atheist; the frame of man's body, and coherence of his parts, being so strange and paradoxical, that I hold it to be the greatest miracle of nature.
      - [Atheism : Creation]
