Laurence Sterne

Irish writer
If time, like money, could be laid by while one was not using it, there might be some excuse for the idleness of half of the world, but yet not a full one. For even this would be such an economy as the living on a principal sum, without making it purchase interest.More Laurence Sterne quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
If there is an evil in this world, it is sorrow and heaviness of heart. The loss of goods, of health, of coronets and mitres, is only evil as they occasion sorrow; take that out, the rest is fancy, and dwelleth only in the head of man.More Laurence Sterne quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Probably Providence has implanted peevishness and ill-temper in sick and old persons, in compassion to the friends or relations who are to survive; as it must naturally lessen the concern they might otherwise feel for their loss.More Laurence Sterne quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
God tempers the wind to the shorn lamb.More Laurence Sterne quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Philosophy has a fine saying for everything.-For Death it has an entire set.More Laurence Sterne quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
