    Quotes by Joseph Addison

    • A misery is not to be measured from the nature of the evil, but from the temper of the sufferer.
    • An ostentatious man will rather relate a blunder or an absurdity he has committed, than be debarred from talking of his own dear person.
    • If men would consider not so much wherein they differ, as wherein they agree, there would be far less of uncharitableness and angry feeling.
    • If you wish success in life, make perseverance your bosom friend, experience your wise counselor, caution your elder brother and hope your guardian genius.
    • It is folly for an eminent person to think of escaping censure, and a weakness to be affected by it. All the illustrious persons of antiquity, and indeed of every age, have passed through this fiery persecution. There is no defense against reproach but obscurity; it is a kind of concomitant to greatness, as satires and invectives were an essential part of a Roman triumph.
