Thomas Love Peacock

English author, best known for his humorous short novels
The waste of plenty is the resource of scarcity.More Thomas Love Peacock quotes [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The present is our own; but while we speak,
We cease from its possession, and resign
The stage we tread on, to another race,
As vain, and gay, and mortal as ourselves.More Thomas Love Peacock quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I almost think it is the ultimate destiny of science to exterminate the human race.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]
But though first love's impassioned blindness Has passed away in colder light, I still have thought of you with kindness, And shall do, till our last goodnight. The ever-rolling silent hours Will bring a time we shall not know, When our young days of gathering flowers Will be an hundred years ago.More Thomas Love Peacock quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
