Generation Consoles

Famous quotes containing the words generation and/or consoles:

    What makes this Generation of Vermin so very Prolifick, is the indefatigable Diligence with which they apply themselves to their Business. A Man does not undergo more watchings and fatigues in a Campaign, than in the Course of a vicious Amour. As it is said of some Men, that they make their Business their Pleasure, these Sons of Darkness may be said to make their Pleasure their Business. They might conquer their corrupt Inclinations with half the Pains they are at in gratifying them.
    Joseph Addison (1672–1719)

    The only thing that ever consoles man for the stupid things he does is the praise he always gives himself for doing them.
    Oscar Wilde (1854–1900)
