    Oliver Goldsmith Quotes

    British-Irish author

    Quotes by Oliver Goldsmith

    • Don't let us make imaginary evils, when you know we have so many real ones to encounter.
    • Hope, like the gleaming taper's light, Adorns and cheers our way; And still, as darker grows the night, Emits a brighter ray.
    • Ill fares the land, to hast'ning ill a prey, Where wealth accumulates, and men decay; Princes and Lords may flourish, or may fade: A breath can make them, as a breath has made; but a bold peasantry, their country's pride, When once destroyed can never be supplied.
