Happiness is not a possession to be prized. It is a quality of thought, a state of mind.Daphne Du Maurier
- When anger rushes, unrestrain'd to action,
Like a hot steed, it stumbles in its way:
The man of thought strikes deepest, and strikes safest.
- Sir Thomas Overbury
- He lives to build, not boast, a generous race;
No tenth transmitter of a foolish face.
- The Bastard, line 7, reported in Bartlett's Familiar Quotations, 10th ed. (1919).
- May see thee now, though late, redeem thy name,
And glorify what else is damn'd to fame.
