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.
But 't was a maxim he had often tried,
That right was right, and there he would abide.

And took for truth the test of ridicule.
A great lie is like a great fish on dry land; it may fret and fling and make a frightful bother, but it cannot hurt you. You have only to keep still, and it will die of itself.
To sigh, yet not recede; to grieve, yet not repent.
Time has touched me gently in his race,
And left no odious furrows in my face.
