SIR SAMUEL EGERTON BRYDGES
English bibliographer, biographer and genealogist
(1762 - 1837)

I have observed that vulgar readers almost always lose their veneration for the writings of the genius with whom they have had personal intercourse.
      - [Authorship]

Nil admirari is the motto which men of the world always affect. They think it vulgar to wonder, or be enthusiastic. They have so much corruption and so much charlatanism that they think the credit of all high qualities must be delusive.
      - [Cynicism]

There is this value in books, that they enable us to converse with the dead. There is something in this beyond the mere intrinsic worth of what they have left us.
      - [Books]

The glory dies not, and the grief is past.
      - On the Death of Sir Walter Scott [Glory]
