Thomas Love Peacock

English author, best known for his humorous short novels
My quarrel with him is, that his works contain nothing worth quoting; and a book that furnishes no quotations, is me judice, no book,—it is a plaything.More Thomas Love Peacock quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Sir, I have quarrelled with my wife; and a man who has quarrelled with his wife is absolved from all duty to his country.More Thomas Love Peacock quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
My steps have pressed the flowers,
That to the Muses' bowers
The eternal dews of Helicon have given:
And trod the mountain height,
Where Science, young and bright,
Scans with poetic gaze the midnight-heaven.
Yet have I found no power to vie
With thine, severe necessity!More Thomas Love Peacock quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Time is lord of thee:
Thy wealth, thy glory, and thy name are his.More Thomas Love Peacock quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Seamen three! what men be ye?
Gotham's three Wise Men we be.
Whither in your bowl so free?
To rake the moon from out the sea.
The bowl goes trim. The moon doth shine,
And our ballast is old wine.More Thomas Love Peacock quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
