Famous quotes containing the word nature:
“The passions seldom give good advice but to the interested and mercenary. Resentment generally suggests bad measures. Second thoughts and good nature will rarely, very rarely, approve the first hints of anger.”
—Horace Walpole (17171797)
“O Lady! we receive but what we give,
And in our life alone does Nature live:”
—Samuel Taylor Coleridge (17721834)
