JAMES SHERIDAN KNOWLES
Irish dramatist and actor
(1784 - 1862)

Extremes are ever neighbors; 'tis a step from one to the other.
      - [Extremes]

Find earth where grows no weed, and you may find a heart wherein no error grows.
      - [Error]

Save the love we pay to heaven, there is none purer, holier, than that a virtuous woman feels for him she would cleave through life to. Sisters part from sisters, brothers from brothers, children from their parents, but such woman from the husband of her choice, never!
      - [Marriage]

The herald, earth-accredited, of heaven,--which when men hear, they think upon heaven's king, and run the items over of the account to which he is sure to call them.
      - [Thunder]

The longest time that man may live,
  The lapse of generations of his race,
    The continent entire of time itself,
      Bears not proportion to Eternity;
        Huge as a fraction of a grain of dew
          Co-measured with the broad, unbounded ocean!
            There is the time of man--his proper time,
              Looking at which this life is but a gust,
                A puff of breath, that's scarcely felt ere gone!
      - [Eternity]

Wedlock joins nothing, if it joins not hearts.
      - [Wedlock]

Women do act their part when they do make their ordered houses know them.
      - [Domesticity]

I hear a sound so fine there's nothing lives
  'Twixt it and silence.
      - Virginius (act V, sc. 2) [Sound]
