HEIRS
[ Also see Ancestry Children Inheritance Posterity Relatives ]

He who sees his heir in his own child, carries his eye over hopes and possessions lying far beyond his gravestone, viewing his life, even here, as a period but closed with a comma. He who sees his heir in another man's child sees the full stop at the end of the sentence.
      - Edward George Earle Lytton Bulwer-Lytton, 1st Baron Lytton

All heiresses are beautiful.
      - John Dryden

To heirs unknown descends th' unguarded store,
  Or wanders, heaven-directed, to the poor.
      - Alexander Pope

What madness is it for a man to starve himself to enrich his heir, and so turn a friend into an enemy! For his joy at your death will be proportioned to what you leave him.
      - Seneca (Lucius Annaeus Seneca)

An heiress, remaining unmarried, is a prey to all manner of extortion and imposition, and with the best intentions, becomes--through a bounty--a corruption to her neighborhood and a curse to the poor; or, if experience shall put her on her guard, she will lead a life of suspicion and resistance, to the injury of her own mind and nature.
      - Jeremy Taylor
