SIR HENRY TAYLOR (2)
English poet, statesman, dramatist and critic
(1800 - 1886)

Fear is the mother of foresight.
      - [Fear]

He who gives what he would as readily throw away gives without generosity; for the essence of generosity is in self-sacrifice.
      - [Generosity]

No siren did ever so charm the ear of the listener as the listening ear has charmed the soul of the siren.
      - [Listening]

Of all the uses of adversity which are sweet, none are sweeter than those which grow out of disappointed love.
      - [Disappointment]

Prodigality is indeed the vice of a weak nature, as avarice is of a strong one; it comes of a weak craving for those blandishments of the world which are easily to be had for money.
      - [Extravagance]

The art of living easily as to money is to pitch your scale of living one degree below your means.
      - [Money]

The philosophy which affects to teach us a contempt of money does not run very deep.
      - [Money]

When you give, take to yourself no credit for generosity, unless you deny yourself something in order that you may give.
      - [Generosity]

Wisdom is corrupted by ambition, even when the quality of the ambition is intellectual. For ambition even of this quality, is but a form of self-love.
      - [Ambition]

I have not skill
  From such a sharp and waspish word as "No"
    To pluck the sting.
      - Philip Van Artevelde (act I, sc. 2)
        [Words]

The world knows nothing of its greatest men.
      - Philip Van Artevelde (act I, sc. 5)
        [Greatness]

He that lacks time to mourn, lacks time to mend.
  Eternity mourns that. 'Tis an ill cure
    For life's worst ills to have no time to feel them.
      - Philip Van Artevelde (pt. I, act I, sc. 5)
        [Mourning : Time]

We figure to ourselves
  The thing we like, and then we build it up
    As chance will have it, on the rock or sand:
      For Thought is tired of wandering o'er the world,
        And homebound Fancy runs her bark ashore.
      - Philip Van Artevelde (pt. I, act I, sc. 5)
        [Fancy]

An unreflected light did never yet
  Dazzle the vision feminine.
      - Philip Van Artevelde
         (pt. I, act I, sc. 5, l. 88) [Light]

Such souls,
  Whose sudden visitations daze the world,
    Vanish like lighting, but they leave behind
      A voice that in the distance far away
        Wakens the slumbering ages.
      - Philip Van Artevelde (pt. I, act I, sc. 7)
        [Character : Influence]
