Best Alexander Smith quotes

Alexander Smith is famous Scottish poet with many wise quotes. Share the best Alexander Smith quotations of all times with your friends and family.

Love is but the discovery of ourselves in others, and the delight in the recognition.

We are never happy; we can only remember that we were so once.

Everything is sweetened by risk.

The sea complains upon a thousand shores.

If you wish to preserve your secret, wrap it up in frankness.

I would rather be remembered by a song than by a victory.

If the egotist is weak, his egotism is worthless. If the egotist is strong, acute, full of distinctive character, his egotism is precious, and remains a possession of the race.

  • ego

A man's real possession is his memory. In nothing else is he rich, in nothing else is he poor.

A man gazing on the stars is proverbially at the mercy of the puddles in the road.

To be occasionally quoted is the only fame I care for.

Every man's road in life is marked by the grave of his personal likings.

In life there is nothing more unexpected and surprising than the arrivals and departures of pleasure. If we find it in one place today, it is vain to seek it there tomorrow. You can not lay a trap for it.

I go into my library, and all history unrolls before me. I breathe the morning air of the world while the scent of Eden's roses yet lingered in it, while it vibrated only to the world's first brood of nightingales, and to the laugh of Eve. I see the pyramids building; I hear the shoutings of the armies of Alexander.

The world is not so much in need of new thoughts as that when thought grows old and worn with usage it should, like current coin, be called in, and, from the mint of genius, reissued fresh and new.

If you wish to make a man look noble, your best course is to kill him. What superiority he may have inherited from his race, what superiority nature may have personally gifted him with, comes out in death.

Your death and my death are mainly of importance to ourselves. The black plumes will be stripped off our hearses within the hour; tears will dry, hurt hearts close again, our graves grow level with the church-yard, and although we are away, the world wags on. It does not miss us; and those who are near us, when the first strangeness of vacancy wears off, will not miss us much either.

I go into my library and all history unrolls before me.
