George Lyttelton
Alas! by some degree of woe
We every bliss must gain;
The heart can ne'er a transport know
That never feels a pain.
Lyttelton quotes
How much the wife is dearer than the bride.
The lover in the husband may be lost.

What is your sex's earliest, latest care,
Your heart's supreme ambition? To be fair.
Lyttelton George 1st Baron
None without hope e'er lov'd the brightest fair,
But love can hope where reason would despair.
George Lyttelton quotes
Where none admire, 't is useless to excel;
Where none are beaux, 't is vain to be a belle.
George Lyttelton
Women, like princes, find few real friends.
