Edward Bulwer-Lytton Quote: “Political freedom is, or ought to be, the best guaranty for the safety and continuance of spiritual, mental, and civil freedom. It is the combination of numbers to secure the liberty to each one.”
Edward Bulwer-Lytton Quote: “Real philosophy seeks rather to solve than to deny.”
Edward Bulwer-Lytton Quote: “This confession leads me to the sentence with which I shall conclude: If, reader, in this book there be anything that pleases you, it is certainly mine; but whenever you come to something you dislike, – lay the blame upon the old gentleman!”
Edward Bulwer-Lytton Quote: “Keep unscathed the good name; keep out of peril the honor without which even your battered old soldier who is hobbling into his grave on half-pay and a wooden leg would not change with Achilles.”
Edward Bulwer-Lytton Quote: “Oratory, like the drama, abhors lengthiness; like the drama, it must keep doing. It avoids, as frigid, prolonged metaphysical soliloquy. Beauties themselves, if they delay or distract the effect which should be produced on the audience, become blemishes.”
Edward Bulwer-Lytton Quote: “In one of the Welsh counties is a small village called A – –. It is somewhat removed from the high road, and is, therefore, but little known to those luxurious amateurs of the picturesque, who view nature through the windows of a carriage and four.”
Edward Bulwer-Lytton Quote: “The faults of a brilliant writer are never dangerous on the long run; a thousand people read his work who would read no other; inquiry is directed to each of his doctrines; it is soon discovered what is sound and what is false; the sound become maxims, and the false beacons.”

Edward Bulwer-Lytton Quote: “Debt is to man what the serpent is to the bird; its eye fascinates, its breath poisons, its coil crushes sinew and bone, its jaw is the pitiless grave.”
Edward Bulwer-Lytton Quote: “In beginning the world, if you don’t wish to get chafed at every turn, fold up your pride carefully, put it under lock and key, and only let it out to air upon grand occasions.
