Quotes by George Crabbe

Better to love amiss than nothing to have loved.
A great lie is like a great fish on dry land; it may fret and fling and make a frightful bother, but it cannot hurt you. You have only to keep still, and it will die of itself.
To the house of a friend if you're pleased to retire, You must all things admit, you must all things admire; You must pay with observance the price of your treat, You must eat what is praised, and must praise what you eat.
In her experience all her friends relied, Heaven was her help and nature was her guide.
The game is never lost till won.
Our farmers round, well pleased with constant gain, Like other farmers, flourish and complain.
Feed the musician, and he's out of tune.
To sigh, yet not recede; to grieve, yet not repent.
Be there a will, and wisdom finds a way.
With eye upraised his master's looks to scan, The joy, the solace, and the aid of man; The rich man's guardian, and the poor man's friend, The only creature faithful to the end.
Deceivers are the most dangerous members of society. They trifle with the best affections of our nature, and violate the most sacred obligations.
Habit with him was all the test of truth, It must be right I've done it from my youth.
Our farmers round, well pleased with constant gain, like other farmers, flourish and complain.
