CHURCHILL, Charles Quotes
(1731-1761,), English poet
An awkward man never does justice to himself; to his intelligence, to his intentions, or to his actual merit.—A fine person, or a beauteous face are in vain without the grace of deportment.
Children of the night, of indigestion bred.
Those who would make us feel, must feel themselves.
No crime is so great to envy as daring to excel.
Fashion is a word which knaves and fools may use to excuse their knavery and folly.
Fops take a world of pains, to prove that bodies can exist without brains; the former so fantastically drest, that the latter's absence may be safely guessed.
The more haste ever the worse speed.
The most infamous are fond of fame; and those who fear not guilt, yet start at shame.
Among the sons of men how few are known, who dare be just to merit not their own!
To lash the vices of a guilty age.
Those who fear not guilt, yet start at shame.
