Samuel Richardson
The person who will bear much shall have much to bear, all the world through.
Richardson quotes
A feeling heart is a blessing that no one, who has it, would be without; and it is a moral security of innocence; since the heart that is able to partake of the distress of another, cannot wilfully give it.
Richardson
Those who have least to do are generally the most busy people in the world.




Richardson Samuel quotes
I am forced, as I have often said, to try to make myself laugh, that I may not cry: for one or other I must do.
Richardson Samuel
My Master said, on another Occasion, that those who doubt most, always erred least.
Samuel Richardson quotes
Nothing can be more wounding to a spirit not ungenerous, than a generous forgiveness.
Samuel Richardson
Of what violences, murders, depredations, have not the epic poets, from all antiquity, been the occasion, by propagating false honour, false glory, and false religion?
Richardson Samuel quotes
That dangerous but too commonly received notion, that a reformed rake makes the best husband.
Richardson
Vast is the field of Science ... the more a man knows, the more he will find he has to know.
Richardson Samuel
The World, thinking itself affronted by superior merit, takes delight to bring it down to its own level.
Samuel Richardson
Love gratified, is love satisfied and love satisfied, is indifference begun.




Samuel Richardson quotes
The mind can be but full. It will be as much filled with a small disagreeable occurrence, having no other, as with a large one.
Samuel Richardson
O! what a Godlike Power is that of doing Good! I envy the Rich and the Great for nothing else!
Richardson quotes
There hardly can be a greater difference between any two men, than there too often is, between the same man, a lover and a husband.
Richardson Samuel
The pleasures of the mighty are obtained by the tears of the poor.
