Sir Philip Sidney Quotes

Alexander received more bravery of mind by the pattern of Achilles, than by hearing the definition of fortitude.

All is but lip-wisdom which wants experience.

But words came halting forth, wanting Inventions stayInvention, Natures child, fled step-dame Studys blows...Biting my truant pen, beating myself for spite,Fool, said my Muse to me look in thy heart and write.

In forming a judgment, lay your hearts void of foretaken opinions; else, whatsoever is done or said, will be measured by a wrong rule; like them who have jaundice, to whom everything appears yellow.

No sword bites so fiercly as an evil tongue.

The ingredients of health and long life, are great temperance, open air, easy labor, and little care.

They are never alone that are accompanied with noble thoughts.
