CHARLES MONTAGU HALIFAX, LORD HALIFAX
English statesman
(1661 - 1715)

Content is to the mind like moss to a tree; it bindeth it up so as to stop its growth.
      - [Contentment]

He that spareth in everything is an inexcusable niggard. He that spareth in nothing is an inexcusable madman. The mean is to spare in what is least necessary, and to lay out more liberally in what is most required in our several circumstances.
      - [Frugality]

Love is a passion that has friends in the garrison.
      - [Love]

The plainer the dress, with greater luster does beauty appear.
      - [Dress]

The word "necessary" is miserably applied. It disordereth families, and overturneth government, by being so abused. Remember that children and fools want everything because they want judgment to distinguish; and therefore there is no stronger evidence of a crazy understanding than the making too large a catalogue of things necessary.
      - [Necessity]

True merit, like a river, the deeper it is, the less noise it makes.
      - [Merit]
