Quote Bullet

Like other parties of the kind, it was first silent, then talky, then argumentative, then disputatious, then unintelligible, then altogether, then inarticulate, and then drunk. When we had reached the last step of this glorious ladder, it was difficult to get down again without stumbling.
~ Lord Byron - [Parties]

Pythagoras, Locke, Socrates -- but pages might be filled up, as vainly as before, with the sad usage of all sorts of sages, who in his life-time, each was deemed a bore! The loftiest minds outrun their tardy ages.

Quote Bullet

Whenever I meet with anything agreeable in this world it surprises me so much -- and pleases me so much (when my passions are not interested in one way or the other) that I go on wondering for a week to come.
~ Lord Byron - [Pleasure]

~ Lord Byron - [Poetry and Poets]

Quote Bullet

As to ''Don Juan,'' confess that it is the sublime of that there sort of writing; it may be bawdy, but is it not good English? It may be profligate, but is it not life, is it not the thing? Could any man have written it who has not lived in the world? and tooled in a post-chaise? in a hackney coach? in a Gondola? against a wall? in a court carriage? in a vis a vis? on a table? and under it?
~ Lord Byron - [Poetry and Poets]

The fact is, riches are power, and poverty is slavery all over the earth, and one sort of establishment is no better, nor worse, for a people than another.
~ Lord Byron - [Politicians and Politics]

~ Lord Byron - [Procreation]

I should be very willing to redress men wrongs, and rather check than punish crimes, had not Cervantes, in that all too true tale of Quixote, shown how all such efforts fail.
~ Lord Byron - [Punishment]

Quote Bullet

This sort of adoration of the real is but a heightening of the beau ideal.
~ Lord Byron - [Reality]

Quote Bullet

My attachment has neither the blindness of the beginning, nor the microscopic accuracy of the close of such liaisons.
~ Lord Byron - [Relationships]

I am always most religious upon a sunshiny day...
