Edward G. Bulwer-Lytton

“The heart of a man’s like that delicate weed, Which requires to be trampled on, boldly indeed Ere it gives forth the fragrance you wish to extract”

“It is not by the gray of the hair that one knows the age of the heart”

“It is difficult to say who do you the most harm: enemies with the worst intentions or friends with the best”

“The easiest person to deceive is one’s self”
