Henry Fielding

English writer
When the effects of female jealousy do not appear openly in their proper colours of rage and fury, we may suspect that mischievous passion to be at work privately, and attempting to undermine, what it doth not attack above-ground.More Henry Fielding quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Want compassion is not to be numbered among the general faults of mankind. The black ingredient which fouls our disposition is envy. Hence our eyes, it is to be feared, are seldom turned up to those who are manifestly greater, better, wiser, or happier than ourselves, without some degree of malignity, we commonly look downward on the mean and miserable with sufficient benevolence and pity.More Henry Fielding quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Now, in reality, the world have paid too great a compliment to critics, and have imagined them to be men of much greater profundity then they really are.More Henry Fielding quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
When mighty roast beef was the Englishman's food
It ennobled our hearts and enriched our blood--
Our soldiers were brave and our courtiers were good.
Oh! the roast beef of England.
And Old England's roast beef.More Henry Fielding quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
For parents to restrain the inclinations of their children in marriage is an usurped power.More Henry Fielding quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
