Quotes by Alexander Pope

Amusement is the happiness of those who cannot think.

An honest man is the noblest work of God.

And all who told it added something new, And all who heard it made enlargements too.

Fools admire, but men of sense approve.

Our passions are like convulsion fits, which, though they make us stronger for a time, leave us the weaker ever after.

Some people will never learn anything because they understand everything too soon.

A little learning is a dangerous thing;
drink deep, or taste not the Pierian spring:
there shallow draughts intoxicate the brain,
and drinking largely sobers us again.

To err is human, to forgive divine.

Ten censure wrong, for one that writes amiss.

Blessed is he who expects nothing, for he shall never be disappointed.
