Charles Churchill Quotes

Charles Churchill Quotes: Satire, whilst envy and ill-humor swayThe mind of man, must always make her way;Nor to a bosom, with discretion fraught,Is all her malice worth a single thought.The wise have not the will, nor fools the power,To stop her headstrong course; within the hourLeft to herself, she dies; opposing strifeGives her fresh vigor, and prolongs her life.

Charles Churchill Quote: The villager, born humbly and bred hard,Content his wealth, and poverty his guard,In action simply just, in conscience clear,By guilt untainted, undisturb'd by fear,His means but scanty, and his wants but few,Labor his business, and his pleasure too,Enjoys more comforts in a single hourThan ages give the wretch condemn'd to power.

Quotes about Charles Churchill: What is this world?--A term which men have got,To signify not one in ten knows what;A term, which with no more precision passesTo point out herds of men than herds of asses;In common use no more it means, we find,Than many fools in same opinions joined.

Quote about Charles Churchill: When satire flies abroad on falsehood's wing, Short is her life, and impotent her sting; But when to truth allied, the wound she gives Sinks deep, and to remotest ages lives.

Charles Churchill Sayings: The stage I chose--a subject fair and free--'Tis yours--'tis mine--'tis public property.All common exhibitions open lie,For praise or censure, to the common eye.Hence are a thousand hackney writers fed;Hence monthly critics earn their daily bread.This is a general tax which all must pay,From those who scribble, down to those who play.
