William Hazlitt Quote: “The last sort I shall mention are verbal critics – mere word-catchers, fellows that pick out a word in a sentence and a sentence in a volume, and tell you it is wrong. The title of Ultra-Crepidarian critics has been given to a variety of this species.”
William Hazlitt Quote: “True friendship is self-love at second-hand.”
William Hazlitt Quote: “Those who object to wit are envious of it.”

William Hazlitt Quote: “When you find out a man’s ruling passion, beware of crossing him in it.”
William Hazlitt Quote: “Humour is the making others act or talk absurdly and unconsciously; wit is the pointing out and ridiculing that absurdity consciously, and with more or less ill-nature.”
William Hazlitt Quote: “To think justly, we must understand what others mean. To know the value of our thoughts, we must try their effect on other minds.”
William Hazlitt Quote: “We learn to curb our will and keep our overt actions within the bounds of humanity, long before we can subdue our sentiments and imaginations to the same mild tone.”
William Hazlitt Quote: “There are some persons who never succeed from being too indolent to undertake anything; and others who regularly fail, because the instant they find success in their power, they grow indifferent, and give over the attempt.”
William Hazlitt Quote: “We often choose a friend as we do a mistress – for no particular excellence in themselves, but merely from some circumstance that flatters our self-love.”
William Hazlitt Quote: “A Whig is properly what is called a Trimmer – that is, a coward to both sides of the question, who dare not be a knave nor an honest man, but is a sort of whiffing, shuffling, cunning, silly, contemptible, unmeaning negation of the two.”
William Hazlitt Quote: “Envy is littleness of soul.”
William Hazlitt Quote: “The florid style is the reverse of the familiar. The last is employed as an unvarnished medium to convey ideas; the first is resorted to as a spangled veil to conceal the want of them. When there is nothing to be set down but words, it costs little to have them fine.”
William Hazlitt Quote: “There is some virtue in almost every vice, except hypocrisy; and even that, while it is a mockery of virtue, is at the same time a compliment to it.”
William Hazlitt Quote: “Our energy is in proportion to the resistance it meets.”
William Hazlitt Quote: “Time, – the most independent of all things.”

William Hazlitt Quote: “Refinement creates beauty everywhere. It is the grossness of the spectator that discovers anything like grossness in the object.”
