Jonathan Swift quotes

Anglo-Irish author and foremost prose satirist, 1667-1745

Ambition often puts men upon doing the meanest offices; so climbing is performed in the same posture with creeping.


A wise man should have money in his head, but not in his heart.


Every man desires to live long, but no man wishes to be old.


May you live all the days of your life.


Vision is the art of seeing what is invisible to others.


We have enough religion to make us hate, but not enough to make us love one another.


The stoical scheme of supplying our wants by lopping off our desires, is like cutting off our feet when we want shoes.


When a true genius appears in this world, you may know him by this sign, that the dunces are all in confederacy against him.


As blushing will sometimes make a whore pass for a virtuous woman, so modesty may make a fool seem a man of sense.


Nothing is so hard for those who abound in riches to conceive how others can be in want.
