Edward Young Quotes

Too low they build who build below the skies.

The man that blushes is not quite a brute.

A man of pleasure is a man of pains.

Most pleasures, like flowers, when gathered, die.

At thirty man suspects himself a fool; Knows it at forty, and reforms his plan; At fifty chides his infamous delay, Pushes his prudent purpose to resolve; In all the magnanimity of thought Resolves; and re-resolves; then dies the same.

By night an atheist half believes in a God.

Man wants but little; nor that little, long.

Born originals, how comes it to pass that we die Copies?

Our birth is nothing but our death begun, As tapers waste the moment they take fire.

By night an atheist half believes a God.
