Francis Quarles quotes

Beware of him that is slow to anger; for when it is long coming, it is the stronger when it comes, and the longer kept. Abused patience turns to fury.

Put off thy cares with thy clothes; so shall thy rest strengthen thy labor, and so thy labor sweeten thy rest.

Flatter not thyself in thy faith in God if thou hast not charity for thy neighbor.

My mind's my kingdom.

The heart is a small thing, but desireth great matters. It is not sufficient for a kite's dinner, yet the whole world is not sufficient for it.

If thou desire the love of God and man, be humble, for the proud heart, as it loves none but itself, is beloved of none but itself. Humility enforces where neither virtue, nor strength, nor reason can prevail.

That friendship will not continue to the end which is begun for an end.

Luxury is an enticing pleasure, a bastard mirth, which hath honey in her mouth, gall in her heart, and a sting in her tail.

Be wisely worldly, but not worldly wise.

Necessity of action takes away the fear of the act, and makes bold resolution the favorite of fortune.

The road to perseverance lies by doubt.

And he repents in thorns that sleeps in beds of roses.

Has fortune dealt you some bad cards. Then let wisdom make you a good gamester.

Anger may repast with thee for an hour, but not repose for a night; the continuance of anger is hatred, the continuance of hatred turns malice.

He that hath no cross deserves no crown.

Heaven finds an ear when sinners find a tongue.

Let the fear of danger be a spur to prevent it; he that fears not, gives advantage to the danger.

Meditation is the life of the soul: Action, the soul of meditation; and honor the reward of action.

Temper your enjoyments with prudence, lest there be written on your heart that fearful word 'satiety.'

Wisdom not only gets, but once got, retains.

The success of our operas rests most of the time in the hands of the conductor. This person is as necessary as a tenor or a prima donna. Giuseppe Verdi

Feminism is not just about women; it's about letting all people lead fuller lives. Jane Fonda

Let us be the ones who say we do not accept that a child dies every three seconds simply because he does not have the drugs you and I have. Let us be the ones to say we are not satisfied that your place of birth determines your right for life. Let us be outraged, let us be loud, let us be bold. Brad Pitt age
