    Quotes by Sir Walter Scott

    • He that climbs the tall tree has won right to the fruit.
    • O! many a shaft, at random sent, Finds mark the archer little meant; And many a word, at random spoken, May soothe or wound a heart that's broken!
    • To all, to each, a fair good night, And pleasing dreams, and slumbers light.
    • And come he slow, or come he fast, It is but death who comes at last.
      Marmion (1808)
    • Oh what a tangled web we weave, When first we practise to deceive!
      Marmion, Canto vi. Stanza 17.
