Charles Caleb Colton

English cleric, writer and collector, well known for his eccentricities.

Happiness is much more equally divided than some of us imagine. One man shall possess most of the materials, but little of the thing; another may possess much of the thing, but very few of the material. In this particular view of it, happiness had been beautifully compared to the man in the desert--he that gathered much had nothing over, and he that gathered little had no lack.More Charles Caleb Colton quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
The inheritance of a distinguished and noble name is a proud inheritance to him who lives worthily of it.More Charles Caleb Colton quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Levity is often less foolish and gravity less wise than each of them appears.More Charles Caleb Colton quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
When millions applaud you seriously ask yourself what harm you have done; and when they disapprove you, what good.More Charles Caleb Colton quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
