AUGUSTUS WILLIAM HARE
English clergyman and writer
(1792 - 1834)
 << Prev Page    Displaying page 3 of 3

They who boast of their tolerance merely give others leave to be as careless about religion as they are themselves. A walrus might as well pride itself on its endurance of cold.
      - [Toleration]

They who disbelieve in virtue because man has never been found perfect, might as reasonably deny the sun because it is not always noon.
      - [Virtue]

Thought is the wind, knowledge the sail, and mankind the vessel.
      - [Direction]

To Adam Paradise was home. To the good among his descendants home is paradise.
      - [Home]

Unless a tree has borne blossoms in spring, you will vainly look for fruit on it in autumn.
      - [Youth]

Unless society can effect by education what Lord Monboddo holds man to have done by willing it, and can get rid of her tail, it will be wisest to let the educated classes keep their natural station at the head.
      - [Society]

Vice is the greatest of all Jacobins, the archlevellor.
      - [Vice]

We like slipping, but not falling: our real desire is to be tempted enough.
      - [Temptation]

We look to our last sickness for repentance, unmindful that it is during a recovery men repent, not during a sickness.
      - [Repentance]

What a person praises is perhaps a surer standard, even than what he condemns, of his own character, information and abilities.
      - [Praise]

What hypocrites we seem to be whenever we talk of ourselves! Our words sound so humble, while our hearts are so proud.
      - [Egotism]

When will talkers refrain from evil speaking? When listeners refrain from evil hearing. At present there are many so credulous of evil, they will receive suspicions and impressions against persons whom they don't know, from a person whom they do know--an authority good for nothing.
      - [Evil]

When you doubt between words, use the plainest, the commonest, the most idiomatic. Eschew fine words as you would rouge, love simple ones as you would native roses on your cheek.
      - [Style]
