Dancing begets warmth, which is the parent of wantonness. It is, Sir, the great grandfather of cuckoldom.More Henry Fielding quotes [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Human life very much resembles a game of chess: for, as in the latter, while a gamester is too attentive to secure himself very strongly on one side of the board, he is apt to leave an unguarded opening on the other, so doth it often happen in life.More Henry Fielding quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
No acquisitions of guilt can compensate the loss of that solid inward comfort of mind, which is the sure companion of innocence and virtue; nor can in the least balance the evil of that horror and anxiety which, in their room, guilt introduces into our bosoms.More Henry Fielding quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I look upon the vulgar observation, 'That the devil often deserts his friends, and leaves them in the lurch,' to be a great abuse on that gentleman's character. Perhaps he may sometimes desert those who are only his cup acquaintance; or who, at most, are but half his; but he generally stands by those who are thoroughly his servants, and helps them off in all extremities, till their bargain expires.More Henry Fielding quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Some virtuous women are too liberal in their insults to a frail sister; but virtue can support itself without borrowing any assistance from the vices of other women.More Henry Fielding quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
