Joseph Addison

Joseph Addison

English novelist, essayist, educator, politician and founder of Russian journalism.
Education is a companion which no misfortune can depress, no crime can destroy, no enemy can alienate, no despotism can enslave. At home, a friend, abroad, an introduction, in solitude a solace and in society an ornament. It chastens vice, it guides virtue, it gives at once grace and government to genius. Without it, what is man? A splendid slave, a reasoning savage.More Joseph Addison quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
