Edward de Vere, 17th Earl of Oxford

From Quotes
The happiest people are those who think the most interesting thoughts. Those who decide to use leisure as a means of mental development, who love good music, good books, good pictures, good company, good conversation, are the happiest people in the world. And they are not only happy in themselves, they are the cause of happiness in others.

Sourced

  • If women could be fair and yet not fond,
    Or that their love were firm, not fickle still,
    I would not marvel that they make men bond
    By service long to purchase their good will;
    But when I see how frail those creatures are,
    I laugh that men forget themselves so far.
