FRANCIS ALEXANDER DURIVAGE
American author
(1814 - 1881)

How much of love lies buried in dusty graves!
      - [Death]

If you tell a woman she is beautiful, whisper it softly, for if the devil hears, he will echo it many times.
      - [Flattery]

Real merit requires as much labor, to be placed in a true light, as humbug to be elevated to an unworthy eminence; only the success of the false is temporary, that of the true, immortal.
      - [Merit]

Some women don buckler and spear to fight dragons which have no existence.
      - [Prudery]

The diamond of character is revealed by the concussion of misfortune, as the splendor of the precious jewel of the mine is developed by the blows of the lapidary.
      - [Misfortune]

The highest art is artlessness.
      - [Art]

There are some professed Christians who would gladly burn their enemies, but yet who forgive them merely because it is heaping coals of fire on their heads.
      - [Revenge]

To write for a living, according to Mr. Whipple, is coquetting with starvation.
      - [Writing]
