Helen Rowland
William Temple Quotes
Man's wisdom is his best friend; folly his worst enemy.
William Temple

No one ever was a great poet, that applied himself much to anything else.
William Temple

Our present time is indeed a criticizing and critical time, hovering between the wish, and the inability to believe. Our complaints are like arrows shot up into the air at no target: and with no purpose they only fall back upon our own heads and destroy ourselves.
William Temple

The best rules to form a young man, are, to talk little, to hear much, to reflect alone upon what has passed in company, to distrust one's own opinions, and value others that deserve it.
William Temple

The first glass is for myself, the second for my friends, the third for good humor, and the forth for my enemies.
William Temple

The first ingredient in conversation is truth, the next good sense, the third good humor, and the fourth wit.
William Temple

The only way for a rich man to be healthy is by exercise and abstinence, to live as if he were poor.
William Temple

William Temple

There cannot live a more unhappy creature than an ill-natured old man, who is neither capable of receiving pleasures, nor sensible of conferring them on others.
William Temple

When all is done, human life is, at the greatest and the best, but like a froward child, that must be played with and humored a little to keep it quiet till it falls asleep, and then the care is over.
William Temple

When I pray, coincidences happen, and when I don't, they don't.
William Temple

Who ever converses among old books will be hard to please among the new.
William Temple
