Quotes


"Thus we never see the true State of our Condition, till it is illustrated to us by its Contraries; nor know how to value what we enjoy, but by the want of it."
Page 72
Robinson Crusoe - Daniel Defoe
Penguin Popular classics


"
How good one feels when one is full - how satisfied with ourselves and with the world! People who have tried it, tell me that a clear conscience makes you very happy and contented; but a full stomach does the business quite as well, and is cheaper, and more easily obtained. One feels so forgiving and generous after a substantial and well-digested meal - so noble-minded, so kindly-hearted."
Page 87
Three Men in a Boat (To Say Nothing of the Dog) - Jerome K. Jerome
