Citáty Edward Young


„Řeč byla dána člověku, aby zastřel své myšlenky.“

„Slovo bylo člověku dáno proto, aby odhalil svou myšlenku.“


„Údiv je bezděčná chvála.“

„Friendship is the wine of life.“

„Affliction is a good man's shining time.“

„A foe to God was never true friend to man“

„We are all born originals - why is it so many of us die copies?“

„At thirty a man suspects himself a fool;
Knows it at forty, and reforms his plan;
At fifty chides his infamous delay,
Pushes his prudent purpose to resolve;
In all the magnanimity of thought
Resolves; and re-resolves; then dies the same.“
Night Thoughts: Or, The Complaint And The Consolation


„The first sure symptom of a mind in health Is rest of heart and pleasure felt at home.“

„Too low they build, who build beneath the stars.“

„For her own breakfast she'll project a scheme,
Nor take her tea without a strategem.“
Poetical Works of the Rev. Dr. Edward Young

„Procrastination is the thief of time: Year after year it steals, till all are fled, And to the mercies of a moment leaves The vast concerns of an eternal scene“


„Some for renown, on scraps of learning dote, /And think they grow immortal as they quote.“

„By night an atheist half believes in God.“

„Procrastination is the thief of time.“

„Think naught a trifle, though it small appear:
Small sands the mountain, moments make the year,
And trifles life.“
