Famous quotes containing the words sarah fielding and/or fielding:

    I was amongst the virtues like the great Turk in his seraglio of women, and I chose to dwell with that virtue which looked the fairest in my eyes and gave me at that season most pleasure. In short, I made wives of them: I first admired them, then made them my own property, and if they would not submit to my will, I again turned them off and divorced them.
    Sarah Fielding (1710–1768)

    [W]hat I mean by love ... is this. A sympathetic liking—excited by fancy, directed by judgment—and to which is joined also a most sincere desire of the good and happiness of its object.
    —Sarah Fielding (1710–1768)
