Reade quotes
The fortunate man is he who, born poor, or nobody, works gradually up to wealth and consideration, and, having got them, dies before he finds they were not worth so much trouble.
Reade
…even Christians loved one another at first starting.

Well, every one for himself, and Providence for us all--as the elephant said when he danced among the chickens.
Reade
In players, vanity cripples art at every step.
Reade Charles
Courage, mon ami, le diable est mort! / Take courage, my friend, the devil is dead!

Sow an act, and you reap a habit. Sow a habit and you reap a character. Sow a character, and you reap a destiny.
