Jane Austen:  Jane Austen “Human nature is so well disposed towards those who are in interesting situations, that a young person, who either marries or dies, is sure of being kindly spoken of.” Agatha Christie:  Agatha Christie       “Dogs are wise. They crawl away into a quiet corner and lick their wounds and do not rejoin the world until they are whole once more.” Samuel Taylor Coleridge:  Samuel Taylor Coleridge “Language is the armory of the human mind, and at once contains the trophies of its past and the weapons of its future conquests” Sir Arthur Conan Doyle:  Sir Arthur Conan Doyle “Mediocrity knows nothing higher than itself, but talent instantly recognizes genius.” Charles Dickens:  Charles Dickens “The whole difference between construction and creation is exactly this: that a thing constructed can only be loved after it is constructed; but a thing created is loved before it exists.” T.S Eliot:  T.S Eliot       “Only those who will risk going too far can possibly find out how far one can go.” Geoffrey Chaucer:  Geoffrey Chaucer “Women desire six things: They want their husbands to be brave, wise, rich, generous, obedient to wife, and lively in bed”   George Orwell:  George Orwell " At age 50, every man has the face he deserves. " James Joyce:  James Joyce       “A man of genius makes no mistakes; his errors are volitional and are the portals of discovery.” John Keats:  John Keats “Heard melodies are sweet, but those unheard, Are sweeter; therefore, ye soft pipes, play on.” John Milton:  John Milton “He who reigns within himself, and rules passions, desires And fears, is more than a king.” Oscar Wilde:  Oscar Wilde “Public Opinion... an attempt to organize the ignorance of the community, and to elevate it to the dignity of physical force.” Jonathan Swift:  Jonathan Swift       “Books, the children of the brain.” William Wordsworth:  William Wordsworth “She gave me eyes, she gave me ears; And humble cares, and delicate fears; A heart, the fountain of sweet tears; And love and thought and joy.” William Shakespeare:  William Shakespeare "Neither a borrower nor a lender be; For loan oft loses both itself and friend, and borrowing dulls the edge of husbandry". Hamlet quote Act I, Sc. III). Virginia Woolf:  Virginia Woolf “I can only note that the past is beautiful because one never realises an emotion at the time. It expands later, and thus we don't have complete emotions about the present, only about the past.” William Butler Yeats:  William Butler Yeats “Happiness is neither virtue nor pleasure nor this thing nor that but simply growth. We are happy when we are growing.”
