Victor Hugo quotes ~
• “Adversity makes men, and prosperity makes monsters.”
• “A man is not idle because he is absorbed in thought. There is a visible labor and there is an invisible labor.”
• “A creditor is worse than a slave-owner; for the master owns only your person, but a creditor owns your dignity, and can command it.”
• “Architecture has recorded the great ideas of the human race. Not only every religious symbol, but every human thought has its page in that vast book.”
• “Certain thoughts are prayers. There are moments when, whatever be the attitude of the body, the soul is on its knees.”
• “Habit is the nursery of errors.”
• “He who is not capable of enduring poverty is not capable of being free.”
• “Life is a flower of which love is the honey.”

Leigh Hunt
b. 10-19-1784; London, England
d. 8-28-1859; Putney

James Henry Leigh Hunt was an essayist, poet and critic associated with Keats, Shelley and Byron. Hunt lived in poverty much of his life until Mary Shelley settled an annuity on him in 1844, as did Lord Russell (the great-grandfather of Bertrand Russell).

Hunt also is recognizable as the model for the character of Henry Skimpole in Charles Dicken's Bleak House. Dicken's apologized to his friend Hunt but the characterization is permanently connected.

Leigh Hunt quotes ~
• “The groundwork of all happiness is health.”
• “The same people who can deny others everything are famous for refusing themselves nothing.”
• “There are two worlds: the world we can measure with line and rule, and the world that we feel with our hearts and imagination.”
• “Those who have lost an infant are never, in a way, without an infant.”
• “Stolen kisses are always sweetest.”
