Fear is the tax that conscience pays to guilt.

— George Sewell

The most staggering George Sewell quotes that are glad to read

Vain empty words / Of honour, glory and immortal fame, / Can these recall the spirit from its place, / Or re-inspire the breathless clay with life? / What tho' your fame with all its thousand trumpets, / Sound o'er the sepulchres, will that awake / The sleeping dead.


When all the blandishments of life are gone, The coward sneaks to death, the brave live on.


When the adulation of life is gone, the coward sneaks to his death, but the brave live on.


The coward sneaks to death; the brave live on.
