GEORGE JOHN WHYTE-MELVILLE
English novelist and poet
(1821 - 1878)
  CHECK READING LIST (2)  

After all, the head only reproduces what the heart creates; and so we give the mocking-bird credit when he imitates the loving murmurs of the dove.
      - [Head]

For everything created
  In the bounds of earth and sky
    Has such longing to be mated,
      It must couple or must die.
      - [Couples]

Happiness is a rare cosmetic.
      - [Happiness]

"I hope you feel your arm a little easier, sir, this evening?" says Miss Lushington, reappearing in her own peculiar department, fresh and blooming from the revision of her toilet, which usually takes place about seven P.M. Miss Lushington's habits are peculiarly regular and methodical; her attractions of a dazzling, not to say gaudy, description; she is a thorough woman of business, if indeed such a designation be not a contradiction in terms; but when she does take a day's pleasure, there are few ladies who can produce a more satisfactory effect than Miss L.
      - Inside the Bar (ch. 1)
        [Books (First Lines)]

Most men have a sunny spot to which they look back in their existence, as most have an impossible future, to attain which all their energies are exerted, and their resources employed. The difference between these visionary scenes is this, that they think a good deal of the latter, but talk a good deal of the former.
      - Market Harborough (ch. 1)
        [Books (First Lines)]

A wonderful stream is the river of Time
  As it runs through the realms of tears,
    With a faultless rhythm and musical rhyme,
      And a broader sweep and a surge sublime,
        And blends with the ocean of years.
      - probably from Uncle John,
        quote appeared in Moore's "Rural New Yorker", May 31, 1856
        [Time]
