Alfred the Great

Alfred the Great

was King of Wessex from 871 to 899
For in prosperity a man is often puffed up with pride, whereas tribulations chasten and humble him through suffering and sorrow. In the midst of prosperity the mind is elated, and in prosperity a man forgets himself; in hardship he is forced to reflect on himself, even though he be unwilling. In prosperity a man often destroys the good he has done; amidst difficulties he often repairs what he long since did in the way of wickedness.More Alfred the Great quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
All things have rest: why should we toil alone, We only toil, who are the first of things.More Alfred the Great quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
For man is man and master of his fate.More Alfred the Great quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Doom very evenly! Do not doom one doom to the rich; another to the poor! Nor doom one doom to your friend; another to your foe!More Alfred the Great quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
When the Sun
Clearest shineth
Serenest in the heaven,
Quickly are obscured
All over the earth
Other stars.More Alfred the Great quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
