GEORGE LILLO
English dramatist
(1693 - 1739)

A noble birth and fortune, though they make not a bad man good, yet they are a real advantage to a worthy one and place his virtues in a fairer light.
      - [Birth]

Exalted souls
  Have passions in proportion violent,
    Resistless, and tormenting; they're a tax
      Imposed by nature on pre-eminence,
        And fortitude and wisdom must support them.
      - [Passion]

The firmest purpose of a woman's heart to well-timed, artful flattery may yield.
      - [Flattery]

Truth is truth, though from an enemy, and spoken in malice.
      - [Truth]

When gratitude o'erflows the swelling heart, and breathes in free and uncorrupted praise for benefits received, propitious heaven takes such acknowledgment as fragrant incense, and doubles all its blessings.
      - [Gratitude]

What shall we call this undetermin'd state,
  This narrow isthmus 'twixt two boundless oceans,
    That whence we came, and that to which we tend?
      - Arden of Feversham (act III, sc. 2) [Life]
