SIR WILLIAM JONES
English Orientalist and jurist
(1746 - 1794)

Like orient pearls at random strung.
      - translated from the Persian of Hafiz
        [Words]

Mobs are multiplied ignorance.
      - [Mob]

My opinion is, that power should always be distrusted, in whatever hands it is placed.
      - in a letter to Lord Althorpe [Power]

On parent knees, a naked new-born child
  Weeping thou sat'st while all around thee smiled;
    So live, that sinking in thy last long sleep
      Calm thou may'st smile, while all around thee weep.
      - taken from "Enchanted Fruit--Six Hymns to Hindu Deities"
        [Tears]

The moon looks upon many night flowers; the night flowers see but one moon.
      - [Moon]

Seven hours to law, to soothing slumber seven,
  Ten to the world allot, and all to heaven.
      - Ode in Imitation of Alcoeus [Time]

What constitutes a state?
  . . . .
    Men who their duties know,
      But know their rights, and knowing, date maintain.
        . . . .
          And sovereign law, that state's collected will,
            O'er thrones and globes elate,
              Sits empress, crowning good, repressing ill.
      - Ode in Imitation of Alcoeus [Government]
