Horace Walpole

he was an English art historian, man of letters, antiquarian and Whig politician
Fashion is always silly, for, before it can spread far, it must be calculated for silly people; as examples of sense, wit, or ingenuity could be imitated only by a few.More Horace Walpole quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I look upon paradoxes as the impotent efforts of men who, not having capacity to draw attention and celebrity from good sense, fly to eccentricities to make themselves noted.More Horace Walpole quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
My aversion to them...springs from the perniciousness of that sect to society-I hate Papists, as a man, not as a Protestant. If Papists were only enemies to the religion of other men, I should overlook their errors. As they are foes to liberty, I cannot forgive them.More Horace Walpole quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
The next Augustan age will dawn on the other side of the
Atlantic. There will, perhaps, be a Thucydides at Boston, a
Xenophon at New York, in time a Vergil at Mexico, and a Newton at
Peru. At last some curious traveller from Lima will visit
England, and give a description of the ruins of St. Paul's, like
the editions of Balbec and Palmyra.More Horace Walpole quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I do not admire politicians; but when they are excellent in their way, one cannot help allowing them their due.More Horace Walpole quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
