Edward Bulwer-Lytton Quote: “Childhood and genius have the same master organ in common – inquisitiveness.”
Edward Bulwer-Lytton Quote: “Emotion, whether of ridicule, anger, or sorrow, – whether raised at a puppet show, a funeral, or a battle, – is your grandest of levellers. The man who would be always superior should be always apathetic.”
Edward Bulwer-Lytton Quote: “The law is a gun, which if it misses a pigeon always kills a crow; if it does not strike the guilty, it hits someone else. As every crime creates a law, so in turn every law creates a crime.”
Edward Bulwer-Lytton Quote: “Love is rarely a hypocrite; but hate – how detect and how guard against it! It lurks where you least expect it; it is created by causes that you can the least foresee; and civilization multiplies its varieties, whilst it favors its disguise.”
Edward Bulwer-Lytton Quote: “When you talk to the half-wise, twaddle; when you talk to the ignorant, brag; when you talk to the sagacious, look very humble and ask their opinion.”
Edward Bulwer-Lytton Quote: “Self-confidence is not hope; it is the self-judgment of your own internal forces in their relation to the world without, which results from the failure of many hopes and the non-realization of many fears.”

Edward Bulwer-Lytton Quote: “Youth is in danger until it learns to look upon debts as furies.”
Edward Bulwer-Lytton Quote: “Birds sing in vain to the ear, flowers bloom in vain to the eye, of mortified vanity and galled ambition.

Edward Bulwer-Lytton Quote: “Writers are the main landmarks of the past.”
Edward Bulwer-Lytton Quote: “There is one form of hope which is never unwise, and which certainly does not diminish with the increase of knowledge. In that form it changes its name, and we call it patience.”

Edward Bulwer-Lytton Quote: “Fortune is said to be blind, but her favorites never are. Ambition has the eye of the eagle, prudence that of the lynx; the first looks through the air, the last along the ground.”
Edward Bulwer-Lytton Quote: “Character is money; and according as the man earns or spends the money, money in turn becomes character. As money is the most evident power in the world’s uses, so the use that he makes of money is often all that the world knows about a man.”
Edward Bulwer-Lytton Quote: “A reform is a correction of abuses; a revolution is a transfer of power.”
Edward Bulwer-Lytton Quote: “It is the misfortune of all miscellaneous political combinations, that with the purest motives of their more generous members are ever mixed the most sordid interests and the fiercest passions of mean confedes.”
Edward Bulwer-Lytton Quote: “Science is an ocean. It is as open to the cockboat as the frigate. One man carries across it a freightage of ingots, another may fish there for herrings.”
Edward Bulwer-Lytton Quote: “Ere yet we yearn for what is out of our reach, we are still in the cradle. When wearied out with our yearnings, desire again falls asleep; we are on the death-bed.”
Edward Bulwer-Lytton Quote: “A man’s heart must be very frivolous if the possession of fame rewards the labor to attain it. For the worst of reputation is that it is not palpable or present – we do not feel or see or taste it.”
Edward Bulwer-Lytton Quote: “Every great man exhibits the talent of organization or construction, whether it be in a poem, a philosophical system, a policy, or a strategy. And without method there is no organization nor construction.”
Edward Bulwer-Lytton Quote: “Two lives that once part are as ships that divide.”
Edward Bulwer-Lytton Quote: “Not in the knowledge of things without, but in the perfection of the soul within, lies the empire of man aspiring to be more than man.”

Edward Bulwer-Lytton Quote: “Remedy your deficiencies, and your merits will take care of themselves. Every man has in him good and evil. His good is his valiant army, his evil is his corrupt commissariat; reform the commissariat and the army will do its duty.”
Edward Bulwer-Lytton Quote: “It is, the most beautiful truth in morals that we have no such thing as a distinct or divided interest from our race. In their welfare is ours, and by choosing the broadest paths to effect their happiness we choose the surest and the shortest to our own.”
Edward Bulwer-Lytton Quote: “Tell me, sweet eyes, from what divinest star did ye drink in your liquid melancholy?”
Edward Bulwer-Lytton Quote: “Let youth cherish sleep, the happiest of earthly boons, while yet it is at its command; for there cometh the day to all when “neither the voice of the lute nor the birds” shall bring back the sweet slumbers that fell on their young eyes as unbidden as the dews.”
Edward Bulwer-Lytton Quote: “More bounteous run rivers when the ice that locked their flow melts into their waters. And when fine natures relent, their kindness is swelled by the thaw.”
Edward Bulwer-Lytton Quote: “Refuse to be ill. Never tell people you are ill; never own it to yourself. Illness is one of those things which a man should resist on principle at the onset.”
Edward Bulwer-Lytton Quote: “He that fancies himself very enlightened, because he sees the deficiencies of others, may be very ignorant, because he has not studied his own.”
Edward Bulwer-Lytton Quote: “Art does not imitate nature, but founds itself on the study of nature, takes from nature the selections which best accord with its own intention, and then bestows on them that which nature does not possess, viz: The mind and soul of man.”
Edward Bulwer-Lytton Quote: “Life is short – while we speak it flies; enjoy, then, the present, and forget the future; such is the moral of ancient poetry, a graceful and a wise moral – indulged beneath a southern sky, and all deserving, the phrase applied to it – the philosophy of the garden.”

Edward Bulwer-Lytton Quote: “Money never can be well managed if sought solely through the greed of money for its own sake. In all meanness there is a defect of intellect as well as of heart. And even the cleverness of avarice is but the cunning of imbecility.”
Edward Bulwer-Lytton Quote: “To mourn deeply for the death of another loosens from myself the petty desire for, and the animal adherence to life. We have gained the end of the philosopher, and view without shrinking the coffin and the pall.”
Edward Bulwer-Lytton Quote: “Money is a terrible blab; she will betray the secrets of her owner, whatever he do to gag her. His virtues will creep out in her whisper; his vices she will cry aloud at the top of her tongue.”

Edward Bulwer-Lytton Quote: “Dandies, when first-rate, are generally very agreeable men.”
