Top 5 quotes from Charles Caleb Colton
"None are so fond of secrets as those who do not mean to keep them."
"To dare to live alone is the rarest courage; since there are many who had rather meet their bitterest enemy in the field, than their own hearts in their closet."
"Examinations are formidable even to the best prepared, for the greatest fool may ask more than the wisest man can answer."
"If you would be known, and not know, vegetate in a village; If you would know, and not be known, live in a city."
"Men are born with two eyes, but only one tongue, in order that they should see twice as much as they say."
Top 5 quotes from Love
"Love anything and your heart will be wrung and possibly broken. If you want to make sure of keeping it intact you must give it to no one, not even an animal. Wrap it carefully round with hobbies and little luxuries; avoid all entanglements. Lock it up safe in the casket or coffin of your selfishness. But in that casket, safe, dark, motionless, airless, it will change. It will not be broken; it will become unbreakable, impenetrable, irredeemable. To love is to be vulnerable."
"Life is but a brief moment. The years go by quickly and old age arrives suddenly before we have an inkling. People desire so many things and waste their days in vain. Some yearn for gold, others for power, yet others for glory and a higher station. But when death's moment nears and they look back at their lives they've lived, they realise they've been happy only during those moments when they've loved."
"Love is not affectionate feeling, but a steady wish for the loved person's ultimate good as far as it can be obtained."
"You are what you love. Not what loves you."
"Love never dies a natural death. It dies because we don't know how to replenish it's source. It dies of blindness and errors and betrayals. It dies of illness and wounds; it dies of weariness, of witherings, of tarnishings."
