More from Edward George Earl Bulwer-Lytton

The pen is mightier than the sword.

Richelieu. Act ii. Sc. ii.

Fate laughs at probabilities.

Eugene Aram. Book i. Chap. x.

Ambition has no risk.

Richelieu. Act iii. Sc. i.

In the lexicon of youth, which fate reserves
For a bright manhood, there is no such word
As “fail.”

Richelieu. Act iii. Sc. i.
