Sir Walter Scott Quotes
To be always intending to live a new life, but never find time to set about it - this is as if a man should put off eating and drinking from one day to another till he be starved and destroyed.
Love rules the court, the camp, the grove, And men below, and saints above For love is heaven, and heaven is love.
We shall never learn to feel and respect our real calling and destiny, unless we have taught ourselves to consider everything as moonshine, compared with the education of the heart.
Oh, what tangled webs we weave, When we first practice to deceive.
Our time is like our money; when we change a guinea the shillings escape as things of small account; when we break a day by idleness in the morning, the rest of the hours lose their importance in our eyes.
To all, to each, a fair good night, And pleasing dreams, and slumbers light.
