Walter Savage Landor

English poetry writer
Wise or unwise, who doubts for a moment that contentment is the cause of happiness? Yet the inverse is true: we are contented because we are happy, and not happy because we are contented. Well-regulated minds may be satisfied with a small portion of happiness; none can be happy with a small portion of content.More Walter Savage Landor quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
We are no longer happy so soon as we wish to be happier.More Walter Savage Landor quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Piety--warm, soft, and passive as the ether round the throne of Grace--is made callous and inactive by kneeling too much.More Walter Savage Landor quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Two evils, of almost equal weight, may befall the man of erudition; never to be listened to, and to be listened to always.More Walter Savage Landor quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
We oftener say things because we can say them well, than because they are sound and reasonable.More Walter Savage Landor quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
