William Hazlitt Quote: “Art must anchor in nature, or it is the sport of every breath of folly.”

William Hazlitt Quote: “In exploring new and doubtful tracts of speculation, the mind strikes out true and original views; as a drop of water hesitates at first what direction it will take, but afterwards follows its own course.”
William Hazlitt Quote: “Human life may be regarded as a succession of frontispieces. The way to be satisfied is never to look back.”
William Hazlitt Quote: “The person whose doors I enter with most pleasure, and quit with most regret, never did me the smallest favor.”
William Hazlitt Quote: “One of the pleasantest things in the world is going a journey; but I like to go by myself. I can enjoy society in a room; but out of doors, nature is company enough for me. I am then never less lone than when alone... I cannot see the wit of walking and talking at the same time. When I am in the country, I wish to vegetate like the country... I like solitude, when I give myself up to it, for the sake of solitude...”
William Hazlitt Quote: “The true barbarian is he who thinks everything barbarous but his own tastes and prejudices.”

William Hazlitt Quote: “A man in love prefers his passion to every other consideration, and is fonder of his mistress than he is of virtue. Should she prove vicious, she makes vice lovely in his eyes.”
William Hazlitt Quote: “Spleen can subsist on any kind of food.”
William Hazlitt Quote: “By retaliating our sufferings on the heads of those we love, we get rid of a present uneasiness and incur lasting remorse. With the accomplishment of our revenge our fondness returns; so that we feel the injury we have done them, even more than they do.”

William Hazlitt Quote: “Reflection makes men cowards.”
William Hazlitt Quote: “The public is so in awe of its own opinion that it never dares to form any, but catches up the first idle rumour, lest it should be behindhand in its judgment, and echoes it till it is deafened with the sound of its own voice.”
William Hazlitt Quote: “We prefer a person with vivacity and high spirits, though bordering upon insolence, to the timid and pusillanimous; we are fonder of wit joined to malice than of dullness without it.”
William Hazlitt Quote: “Mankind are a herd of knaves and fools. It is necessary to join the crowd, or get out of their way, in order not to be trampled to death by them.”
