Washington Irving quotes

Writer called the “first American man of letters” , 1783-1859

There is a sacredness in tears. They are not the mark of weakness, but of power. They speak more eloquently than ten thousand tongues. They are messengers of overwhelming grief...and unspeakable love.


Sweet is the memory of distant friends! Like the mellow rays of the departing sun, it falls tenderly, yet sadly, on the heart.


Great minds have purposes; others have wishes.


Nothing is enough for the man to whom enough is to little.


A sharp tongue is the only edge tool that grows keener with constant use.


Great minds have purposes; little minds have wishes. Little minds are subdued by misfortunes; great minds rise above them.


I've had it with you and your emotional constipation!


The Almighty Dollar, that great object of universal devotion throughout our land.


There is a certain relief in change, even though it be from bad to worse; as I have found in travelling in a stagecoach, that it is often a comfort to shift one's position and be bruised in a new place.


A kind heart is a fountain of gladness, making everything in its vicinity freshen into smiles.
