Edward Bulwer-Lytton Quote: “In families well ordered, there is always one firm, sweet temper, which controls without seeming to dictate. The Greeks represented Persuasion as crowned.”

Edward Bulwer-Lytton Quote: “The superstitious belief, common to miners, that gnomes or fiends dwell within the bowels of the earth, began to seize me. I shuddered at the thought of descending further and braving the inhabitants of this nether valley.

Edward Bulwer-Lytton Quote: “Of all the weaknesses little men rail against, there is none that they are more apt to ridicule than the tendency to believe.

Edward Bulwer-Lytton Quote: “No reproach is like that we clothe in a smile, and present with a bow.”
Edward Bulwer-Lytton Quote: “In how large a proportion of creatures is existence composed of one ruling passion, the most agonizing of all sensations – fear.”

Edward Bulwer-Lytton Quote: “Happiness and virtue rest upon each other; the best are not only the happiest, but the happiest are usually the best.”
Edward Bulwer-Lytton Quote: “Strive, while improving your one talent, to enrich your whole capital as a man. It is in this way that you escape from the wretched narrow-mindedness which is the characteristic of every one who cultivates his specialty alone.”
Edward Bulwer-Lytton Quote: “My father died shortly after I was twenty-one; and being left well off, and having a taste for travel and adventure, I resigned, for a time, all pursuit of the almighty dollar, and became a desultory wanderer over the face of the earth.”
