Robert Louis Stevenson

English writer ("Treasure Island")
The mark of a good action is that it appears inevitable in retrospect.More Robert Louis Stevenson quotes [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
All I dreamed about Dr. Jekyll was that one man was being pressed into a cabinet, when he swallowed a drug and changed into another being. I awoke and said at once that I had found the missing link for which I had been looking so long, and before I went again to sleep almost every detail of the story, as it stands, was clear to me. Of course, writing it was another thing.More Robert Louis Stevenson quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
All sorts of allowances are made for the illusions of youth, and none, or almost none for the disenchantment of age.More Robert Louis Stevenson quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
To the old our mouths are always partly closed; we must swallow our obvious retorts and listen. They sit above our heads, on life's raised dais, and appeal at once to our respect and pity.More Robert Louis Stevenson quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
If your morals make you dreary, depend upon it they are wrong. I do not say give them up, for they may be all you have; but conceal them like a vice, lest they should spoil the lives of better and simpler people.More Robert Louis Stevenson quotes [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
