“Though women are angels, yet wedlock’s the devil”

“Truth’s fountains may be clear-her streams are muddy, And cut through such canals of contradiction, That she must often navigate o’er fiction.”

“Man’s love is of man’s life a thing apart,
‘Tis woman’s whole existence; man may range
The court, camp, church, the vessel, and the mart;
Sword, gown, gain, glory, offer in exchange
Pride, fame, ambition, to fill up his heart,
And few there are whom these cannot estrange;
Men have all these resources, we but one,
To love again, and be again undone.”

“Who loves, raves”
“Talent may be in time forgiven, but genius never.”

“Tis pleasant, sure, to see one’s name in print. A book’s a book, although there’s nothing in ‘t.”

mozartWolfgang A. Mozart

“Oh, if we only had clarinets!” (in his letter to father, after he heard the sound of clarinet for the first time)

“I was writing it for myself.” (Last words)

George Harrison

“God loves me when I’m singing”

“As far as I’m concerned, there won’t be a Beatles reunion as long as John Lennon remains dead.”

“They told us that more people had come out to see us than had come out to see The Queen which is hardly surprising because she hasn’t had any hit records.”

verneJules Verne

“Nothing can astound an American. It has often been asserted that the word “impossible” is not a French one. People have evidently been deceived by the dictionary. In America, all is easy, all is simple; and as for mechanical difficulties, they are overcome before they arise. Between Barbicane’s proposition and its realization no true Yankee would have allowed even the semblance of a difficulty to be possible. A thing with them is no sooner said than done.”

“The sea is everything. It covers seven tenths of the terrestrial globe. Its breath is pure and healthy. It is an immense desert, where man is never lonely, for he feels life stirring on all sides. The sea is only the embodiment of a supernatural and wonderful existence. It is nothing but love and emotion.”

“The human mind delights in grand conceptions of supernatural beings. And the sea is precisely their best vehicle, the only medium through which these giants (against which terrestrial animals, such as elephants or rhinoceroses, are as nothing) can be produced or developed.”

“Man is never perfect, nor contented.”

“Civilization never recedes; the law of necessity ever forces it onwards.”

“I would have bartered a diamond mine for a glass of pure spring water!”

“It is a great misfortune to be alone, my friends; and it must be believed that solitude can quickly destroy reason.”
