Creative Quotations from . . .
George Crabbe
(1754-1832) born on
Dec 24
English poet, short-story writer. He is noted for his memorable tales with their realistic details of everyday life.
Habit with him was all the test of truth,
It must be right: I've done it from my youth.

Books cannot always please, however good;
Minds are not ever craving for their food.
In idle wishes fools supinely stay;
Be there a will, and wisdom finds a way.
Better to love amiss than nothing to have loved.
Oh! rather give me commentators plain,
Who with no deep researches vex the brain;
Who from the dark and doubtful love to run,
And hold their glimmering tapers to the sun.
