Though no participator in the joy of more vehement sport, I have a pleasure that I cannot reconcile to my abstract notions of the tenderness due to dumb creatures in the tranquil cruelty of angling. I can only palliate the wanton destructiveness of my amusement by trying to assure myself that my pleasure does not spring from the success of the treachery I practise toward a poor little fish, but rather from that innocent revelry in the luxuriance of summer life which only anglers enjoy to the utmost. — Edward Bulwer-Lytton, 1st Baron Lytton

Edward Bulwer-Lytton, 1st Baron Lytton Quotes 1002121

Edward Bulwer-Lytton, 1st Baron Lytton Quotes 2176448

Edward Bulwer-Lytton, 1st Baron Lytton Quotes 409546

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.

Edward Bulwer-Lytton, 1st Baron Lytton Quotes 179622

There is a great deal we never think of calling religion that is still fruit unto God, and garnered by Him in the harvest. The fruits of the Spirit are love, joy, peace, long suffering, gentleness, patience, goodness. I affirm that if these fruits are found in any form, whether you show your patience as a woman nursing a fretful child, or as a man attending to the vexing detail of a business, or as a physician following the dark mazes of sickness, or as a mechanic fitting the joints and valves of a locomotive; being honest true besides, you bring forth truth unto God. — Edward Bulwer-Lytton, 1st Baron Lytton

Edward Bulwer-Lytton, 1st Baron Lytton Quotes 221475

In some exquisite critical hints on "Eurythmy," Goethe remarks, "that the best composition in pictures is that which, observing the most delicate laws of harmony, so arranges the objects that they by their position tell their own story." And the rule thus applied to composition in painting applies no less to composition in literature. — Edward Bulwer-Lytton, 1st Baron Lytton

Edward Bulwer-Lytton, 1st Baron Lytton Quotes 238186

Genius in the poet, like the nomad of Arabia, ever a wanderer, still ever makes a home where the well or the palm-tree invites it to pitch the tent. Perpetually passing out of himself and his own positive circumstantial condition of being into other hearts and into other conditions, the poet obtains his knowledge of human life by transporting his own life into the lives of others. — Edward Bulwer-Lytton, 1st Baron Lytton

Edward Bulwer-Lytton, 1st Baron Lytton Quotes 363194

Edward Bulwer-Lytton, 1st Baron Lytton Quotes 437933

Shame is like the weaver's thread; if it breaks in the net, it is wholly imperfect. — Edward Bulwer-Lytton, 1st Baron Lytton

Edward Bulwer-Lytton, 1st Baron Lytton Quotes 478826

He who esteems trifles for themselves is a trifler; he who esteems them for the conclusions to be drawn from them, or the advantage to which they can be put, is a philosopher. — Edward Bulwer-Lytton, 1st Baron Lytton

Edward Bulwer-Lytton, 1st Baron Lytton Quotes 545149

Edward Bulwer-Lytton, 1st Baron Lytton Quotes 556639

Society is a long series of uprising ridges, which from the first to the last offer no valley of repose. Whenever you take your stand, you are looked down upon by those above you, and reviled and pelted by those below you. Every creature you see is a farthing Sisyphus, pushing his little stone up some Liliputian mole-hill. This is our world. — Edward Bulwer-Lytton, 1st Baron Lytton

Edward Bulwer-Lytton, 1st Baron Lytton Quotes 609426

Edward Bulwer-Lytton, 1st Baron Lytton Quotes 812293

A fiction which is designed to inculcate an object wholly alien to the imagination sins against the first law of art; and if a writer of fiction narrow his scope to particulars so positive as polemical controversy in matters ecclesiastical, political or moral, his work may or may not be an able treatise, but it must be a very poor novel. — Edward Bulwer-Lytton, 1st Baron Lytton

Edward Bulwer-Lytton, 1st Baron Lytton Quotes 830438

Alone!-that worn-out word, So idly spoken, and so coldly heard; Yet all that poets sing and grief hath known Of hopes laid waste, knells in that word ALONE! — Edward Bulwer-Lytton, 1st Baron Lytton

Edward Bulwer-Lytton, 1st Baron Lytton Quotes 831306

when their love is prosperous and confessed. — Edward Bulwer-Lytton, 1st Baron Lytton

Edward Bulwer-Lytton, 1st Baron Lytton Quotes 924865

The cleverness of avarice is but the cunning of imbecility. — Edward Bulwer-Lytton, 1st Baron Lytton

Edward Bulwer-Lytton, 1st Baron Lytton Quotes 1068316

fine breeding. — Edward Bulwer-Lytton, 1st Baron Lytton

Edward Bulwer-Lytton, 1st Baron Lytton Quotes 1219815

Bright and illustrious illusions! Who can blame, who laugh at the boy, who not admire and commend him, for that desire of a fame outlasting the Pyramids by which he insensibly learns to live in a life beyond the present, and nourish dreams of a good unattainable by the senses? — Edward Bulwer-Lytton, 1st Baron Lytton

Edward Bulwer-Lytton, 1st Baron Lytton Quotes 1245699

Edward Bulwer-Lytton, 1st Baron Lytton Quotes 1360442

Woman makes half the sorrows which she boasts the privilege to sooth. Woman consoles us, it is true, while we are young and handsome; when we are old and ugly, woman snubs and scolds us. On the whole, then, woman in this scale, the weed in that. Jupiter! Hang out thy balance, and weigh them both; and if thou give the preference to woman, all I can say is, the next time Juno ruffles thee, O Jupiter, try the weed. — Edward Bulwer-Lytton, 1st Baron Lytton

Edward Bulwer-Lytton, 1st Baron Lytton Quotes 1444075

Ask any school-boy up to the age of fifteen where he would spend his holidays. Not one in five hundred will say, "In the streets of London," if you give him the option of green fields and running waters. It is, then, a fair presumption that there must be something of the child still in the character of the men or the women whom the country charms in maturer as in dawning life. — Edward Bulwer-Lytton, 1st Baron Lytton

Edward Bulwer-Lytton, 1st Baron Lytton Quotes 1452111

Edward Bulwer-Lytton, 1st Baron Lytton Quotes 1483135

To the thinker, the most trifling external object often suggests ideas, which, like Homer's chain, extend, link after link, from earth to heaven. — Edward Bulwer-Lytton, 1st Baron Lytton

Edward Bulwer-Lytton, 1st Baron Lytton Quotes 1492009

A pipe is the fountain of contemplation, the source of pleasure, the companion of the wise; and the man who smokes, thinks like a philosopher and acts like a Samaritan. — Edward Bulwer-Lytton, 1st Baron Lytton

Edward Bulwer-Lytton, 1st Baron Lytton Quotes 1516881

Love is rarely a hypocrite; but hate
how detect and how guard against it! It lurks where you least expect it; it is created by causes that you can the least foresee; and civilization multiplies its varieties, whilst it favors its disguise. — Edward Bulwer-Lytton, 1st Baron Lytton

Edward Bulwer-Lytton, 1st Baron Lytton Quotes 1537672

In one of the Welsh counties is a small village called A
. It is somewhat removed from the high road, and is, therefore, but little known to those luxurious amateurs of the picturesque, who view nature through the windows of a carriage and four. — Edward Bulwer-Lytton, 1st Baron Lytton

Edward Bulwer-Lytton, 1st Baron Lytton Quotes 1541181

Edward Bulwer-Lytton, 1st Baron Lytton Quotes 1549100

Edward Bulwer-Lytton, 1st Baron Lytton Quotes 1549770

The distinguishing trait of people accustomed to good society is a calm, imperturbable quiet which pervades all their actions and habits, from the greatest to the least. They eat in quiet, move in quiet, live in quiet, and lose their wife, or even their money, in quiet; while low persons cannot take up either a spoon or an affront without making such an amazing noise about it. — Edward Bulwer-Lytton, 1st Baron Lytton

Edward Bulwer-Lytton, 1st Baron Lytton Quotes 1606854

Love is on the verge of hate each time it stoops for pardon. — Edward Bulwer-Lytton, 1st Baron Lytton

Edward Bulwer-Lytton, 1st Baron Lytton Quotes 1693983

Irony is to the high-bred what billingsgate is to the vulgar; and when one gentleman thinks another gentleman an ass, he does not say it point-blank, he implies it in the politest terms he can invent. — Edward Bulwer-Lytton, 1st Baron Lytton

Edward Bulwer-Lytton, 1st Baron Lytton Quotes 1694060

The mind profits by the wrecks of every passion. — Edward Bulwer-Lytton, 1st Baron Lytton

Edward Bulwer-Lytton, 1st Baron Lytton Quotes 1713029

A chord, stronger or weaker, is snapped asunder in every parting, and time's busy fingers are not practiced in re-splicing broken ties. Meet again you may; will it be in the same way? With the same sympathies? With the same sentiments? Will the souls, hurrying on in diverse paths, unite once more, as if the interval had been a dream? Rarely, rarely! — Edward Bulwer-Lytton, 1st Baron Lytton

Edward Bulwer-Lytton, 1st Baron Lytton Quotes 1795149

Love creates, love cements, love enters and harmonizes all things. — Edward Bulwer-Lytton, 1st Baron Lytton

Edward Bulwer-Lytton, 1st Baron Lytton Quotes 1798667

It is a wonderful advantage to a man, in every pursuite or avocation, to secure an adviser in a sensible woman. In woman there is at once a subtle delicacy of tact, and a plain soundness of judgement, which are rarely combined to an equal degree in man. A woman, if she be really your friend, will have a sensitive regard for your character, honor, repute. She will seldom counsel you to do a shabby thing: for a woman friend always desires to be proud of you. — Edward Bulwer-Lytton, 1st Baron Lytton

Edward Bulwer-Lytton, 1st Baron Lytton Quotes 1800884

There is a world of science necessary in choosing books. I have known some people in great sorrow fly to a novel, or the last light book in fashion. One might as well take a rose-draught for the plague! Light reading does not do when the heart is really heavy. I am told that Goethe, when he lost his son, took to study a science that was new to him. Ah! Goethe was a physician who knew what he was about. — Edward Bulwer-Lytton, 1st Baron Lytton

Edward Bulwer-Lytton, 1st Baron Lytton Quotes 1846080

If there is a virtue in the world at which we should always aim, it is cheerfulness. — Edward Bulwer-Lytton, 1st Baron Lytton

Edward Bulwer-Lytton, 1st Baron Lytton Quotes 1852270

At court one becomes a sort of human ant eater, and learns to catch one's prey by one's tongue. — Edward Bulwer-Lytton, 1st Baron Lytton

Edward Bulwer-Lytton, 1st Baron Lytton Quotes 1896796

Labour is the purgatory of the erring. — Edward Bulwer-Lytton, 1st Baron Lytton

Edward Bulwer-Lytton, 1st Baron Lytton Quotes 1969462

A gentleman's taste in dress is upon principle, the avoidance of all things extravagant. It consists in the quiet simplicity of exquisite neatness; but, as the neatness must be a neatness in fashion, employ the best tailor; pay him ready money, and, on the whole, you wi11 find him the cheapest. — Edward Bulwer-Lytton, 1st Baron Lytton

Edward Bulwer-Lytton, 1st Baron Lytton Quotes 2000382

Poets alone are sure of immortality; they are the truest diviners of nature. — Edward Bulwer-Lytton, 1st Baron Lytton

Edward Bulwer-Lytton, 1st Baron Lytton Quotes 2005251

Westward, beyond the still pleasant, but, even then, no longer solitary, hamlet of Charing, a broad space, broken here and there by scattered houses and venerable pollards, in the early spring of 1467, presented the rural scene for the sports and pastimes of the inhabitants of Westminister and London. — Edward Bulwer-Lytton, 1st Baron Lytton

Edward Bulwer-Lytton, 1st Baron Lytton Quotes 2056725

Thought is valuable in proportion as it is generative. — Edward Bulwer-Lytton, 1st Baron Lytton

Edward Bulwer-Lytton, 1st Baron Lytton Quotes 2117485

Life is short - while we speak it flies; enjoy, then, the present, and forget the future; such is the moral of ancient poetry, a graceful and a wise moral - indulged beneath a southern sky, and all deserving, the phrase applied to it - the philosophy of the garden. — Edward Bulwer-Lytton, 1st Baron Lytton

Edward Bulwer-Lytton, 1st Baron Lytton Quotes 2118583

In the hour of strait and need, we measure men's stature not by the body, but the soul! — Edward Bulwer-Lytton, 1st Baron Lytton

Edward Bulwer-Lytton, 1st Baron Lytton Quotes 2170083

Edward Bulwer-Lytton, 1st Baron Lytton Quotes 2174473

Curse away! And let me tell thee, Beausant, a wise proverb The Arabs have,-"Curses are like young chickens, And still come home to roost." — Edward Bulwer-Lytton, 1st Baron Lytton

Edward Bulwer-Lytton, 1st Baron Lytton Quotes 2211819

Man only of all earthly creatures, asks, Can the dead die forever? - and the instinct that urges the question is God's answer to man, for no instinct is given in vain. — Edward Bulwer-Lytton, 1st Baron Lytton

Edward Bulwer-Lytton, 1st Baron Lytton Quotes 2241961

To judge human character rightly, a man may sometimes have very small experience, provided he has a very large heart. — Edward Bulwer-Lytton, 1st Baron Lytton

Edward Bulwer-Lytton, 1st Baron Lytton Quotes 2262326

Bu is a word that cools many a warm impulse, stifles many a kindly thought, puts a dead stop to many a brotherly deed. No one would ever love his neighbor as himself if he listened to all the Buts that could be said. — Edward Bulwer-Lytton, 1st Baron Lytton

Edward Bulwer-Lytton, 1st Baron Lytton Quotes 2265582

That man will never be a perfect gentleman who lives only with gentlemen. To be a man of the world we must view that world in every grade and in every perspective. — Edward Bulwer-Lytton, 1st Baron Lytton
