Laurence Sterne

Irish writer
I take a simple view of life. It is keep your eyes open and get on with it.More Laurence Sterne quotes [03/12/2018 02:03:32]
Most of us are aware of and pretend to detest the barefaced instances of that hypocrisy by which men deceive others, but few of us are upon our guard or see that more fatal hypocrisy by which we deceive and over-reach our own hearts.More Laurence Sterne quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
We get forwards in the world not so much by doing services, as receiving them: you take a withering twig, and put it in the ground; and then you water it, because you have planted it.More Laurence Sterne quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I never drink. I cannot do it, on equal terms with others. It costs them only one day; but me three, the first in sinning, the second in suffering, and the third in repenting.More Laurence Sterne quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
To saya man is fallen in love,or that he is deeply in love,or up to the ears in love,and sometimes even over head and ears in it,carries an idiomatical kind of implication, that love is a thing below a man:this is recurring again to Plato's opinion, which, with all his divinityship,I hold to be damnable and heretical:and so much for that. Let love therefore be what it will,my uncleToby fell into it.More Laurence Sterne quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
