Joseph Hall
A reputation once broken may possibly be repaired, but the world will always keep their eyes on the spot where the crack was.
Hall quotes
There is many a rich stone laid up in the bowels of the earth, many a fair pearl laid up in the bosom of the sea, that never was seen, nor never shall be.
Hall
Moderation is the silken string running through the pearl chain of all virtues.




Hall Joseph quotes
Death borders upon our birth, and our cradle stands in the grave.
Hall Joseph
So little in his purse, so much upon his back.
Joseph Hall quotes
Perfection is the child of time…
Joseph Hall
He is wealthy enough, that wanteth not: he is great enough, that is his own master: he is happy enough, that lives to die well.
Hall Joseph quotes
How easy it is for men to be swollen with admiration of their own strength and glory, and to be lifted up so high as to lose sight both of the ground whence they rose, and the hand that advanced them.
Hall
A legal thief, a bloodless murderer,
A fiend incarnate, a false usurer.
