Edward Bulwer-Lytton Quote: “Alone!-that worn-out word, So idly spoken, and so coldly heard; Yet all that poets sing and grief hath known Of hopes laid waste, knells in that word ALONE!”
Edward Bulwer-Lytton Quote: “He who sees his heir in his own child, carries his eye over hopes and possessions lying far beyond his gravestone, viewing his life, even here, as a period but closed with a comma.

Edward Bulwer-Lytton Quote: “Wrap thyself in the decent veil that the arts or the graces weave for thee, O human nature! It is only the statue of marble whose nakedness the eye can behold without shame and offence!”
Edward Bulwer-Lytton Quote: “If you are in doubt whether to write a letter or not, don’t. And the advice applies to many doubts in life besides that of letter writing.”

Edward Bulwer-Lytton Quote: “Husband and wife have so many interests in common that when they have jogged through the ups and downs of life a sufficient time, the leash which at first galled often grows easy and familiar.”
Edward Bulwer-Lytton Quote: “A man is already of consequence in the world when it is known that we can implicitly rely upon him. Often I have known a man to be preferred in stations of honor and profit because he had this reputation: When he said he knew a thing, he knew it, and when he said he would do a thing, he did it.”

Edward Bulwer-Lytton Quote: “Bright and illustrious illusions!

Edward Bulwer-Lytton Quote: “A man’s ancestry is a positive property to him.”
