SIR PHILIP SIDNEY (SYDNEY)
English soldier, author, poet and courtier
(1554 - 1586)
 << Prev Page    Displaying page 5 of 8    Next Page >> 

Sin is the mother, and shame the daughter of lewdness.
      - [Sensuality]

Since bodily strength is but a servant to the mind, it were very barbarous and preposterous that force should be made judge over reason.
      - [Dueling]

Solitude, the sly enemy that doth separate a man from well-doing.
      - [Solitude]

Some are unwisely liberal, and more delight to give presents than to pay debts.
      - [Generosity]

Sweet pillows, sweetest bed;
  A chamber deaf to noise, and blind td light;
    A rosy garland, and a weary head.
      - [Bed]

Sweet speaking oft a currish heart reclaims.
      - [Gentleness]

That a scaffold of execution should grow a scaffold of coronation.
      - [Scaffold]

The baiting-place of wit, the balm of woe, the poor man's wealth, the prisoner's release.
      - [Sleep]

The common ingredients of health and long life are:
  Great temp'rance, open air,
    Easy labor, little care.
      - [Health]

The day seems long, but night is odious; no sleep, but dreams; no dreams but visions strange.
      - [Dreams]

The first mark of valor is defence.
      - [Courage]

The general goodness, which is nourished in noble hearts makes every one think that strength of virtue to be in another whereof they find assured foundation in themselves.
      - [Credulity]

The glory and increase of wisdom stands in exercising it.
      - [Wisdom]

The great, in affliction, bear a countenance more princely than they are wont; for it is the temper of the highest heart, like the palm-tree, to strive most upward when it is most burdened.
      - [Affliction]

The heavens do not send good haps in handfuls; but let us pick out our good by little, and with care, from out much bad, that still our little world may know its king.
      - [Fortune]

The highest point outward things can bring unto, is the contentment of the mind; with which no estate can be poor, without which all estates will be miserable.
      - [Contentment]

The humor of youth, which thinks that good whose goodness it sees not.
      - [Youth]

The ingredients of health and long life, are great temperance, open air, easy labor, and little care.
      - [Health]

The journey of high honor lies not in smooth ways.
      - [Honor]

The judgment of the world stands upon matter of fortune.
      - [World]

The lightsome countenance of a friend giveth such an inward decking to the house where it lodgeth, as proudest palaces have cause to envy the gilding.
      - [Cheerfulness]

The many-headed multitude, whom inconstancy only doth by accident guide to well-doing! Who can set confidence there, where company takes away shame, and each may lay the fault upon his fellow?
      - [Mob]

The only disadvantage of an honest heart is credulity.
      - [Credulity]

The only impregnable citadel of virtue is religion; for there is no bulwark of mere morality which some temptation may not overtop, or undermine and destroy.
      - [Virtue]

The truly great and good, in affliction, bear a countenance more princely than they are wont; for it is the temper of the highest hearts, like the palm-tree, to strive most upwards when it is most burdened.
      - [Adversity]
