Of covetousness, we may truly say that it makes' both the Alpha and Omega in the devil's alphabet, and that it is the first vice in corrupt nature which moves, and the last which dies.
South quotes

South
A man's life is an appendix to his heart.




South Robert quotes

Robert South
Wonder is from surprise, and surprise stops with experience.
South quotes
It is idleness that creates impossibilities; and where people don't care to do anything, they shelter themselves under a permission that it cannot be done.
