Washington Irving

American writer
Speculation is the romance of trade, and casts contempt upon on all its sober realities. It renders the stock-jobber a magician, and the exchange a region of enchantment.More Washington Irving quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
There is certain relief in change, even though it be from bad to worse! As I have often found in traveling in a stagecoach, that it is often a comfort to shift one's position, and be bruised in a new place.More Washington Irving quotes [08/10/2011 05:08:30]
How idle a boast, after all, is the immortality of a name!

Great minds have purposes, others have wishes. Little minds are tamed and subdued by misfortune; but great minds rise above them.More Washington Irving quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
What earnest worker, with hand and brain for the benefit of his fellowmen, could desire a more pleasing recognition of his usefulness than the monument of a tree, ever growing, ever blooming, and ever bearing wholesome fruit?More Washington Irving quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
