He that knew all that learning ever writ, Knew only this - that he knew nothing yet.


Each moment of a happy lover's hour is worth an age of dull and common life.


One hour of right-down love is worth an age of dully living on.


Love ceases to be a pleasure when it ceases to be a secret.


There is no sinner like a young saint.


Faith, sir, we are here today, and gone tomorrow.


Nothing is more capable of troubling our reason, and consuming our health, than secret notions of jealousy in solitude.


That perfect tranquillity of life, which is nowhere to be found but in retreat, a faithful friend and a good library.


Variety is the soul of pleasure.


Money speaks sense in a language all nations understand.
