Love is a tyrant sparing none.
— Pierre Corneille

Go far -- too far you cannot, still the farther. The more experience finds you: and go sparing. One meal a week will serve you, and one suit, Through all your travels; for you'll find it certain. The poorer and the baser you appear, The more you look through still.
John Fletcher sparing quote

Once more I would adopt the graver style -- a teacher should be sparing of his smile.
— William Cowper

The glory of the old Irish nation, which in our hour will grow young and strong again. Should we fail, the country will not be worth more than it is now. The sword of famine is less sparing than the bayonet of the soldier.
— Thomas Francis Meagher

I hold it the duty of the executive to insist upon frugality in the expenditure, and a sparing economy is itself a great national source.
— Andrew Johnson
