More from Edward George Earl Bulwer-Lytton

Take away the sword;
States can be saved without it.

Richelieu. Act iii. Sc. i.

In science, read, by preference the newest works; in literature, the oldest. The classics are always modern.

Caxtoniana: Hints on Mental Culture.

For a bright manhood, there is no such word
As “fail.”

Richelieu. Act iii. Sc. i.

Our glories float between the earth and heaven
Like clouds which seem pavilions of the sun.

Richelieu. Act v. Sc. iii.

The brilliant chief, irregularly great,
Frank, haughty, rash,–the Rupert of debate!

The New Timon. (1846). Part i.
