Samuel Richardson
“In other words, such is he desire which everyone has to exculpate himself by blackening his neighbour. You and I, Belford, have been very kind to the world in furnishing it with many opportunities to gratify its devil.”
Samuel Richardson, Clarissa, or, the History of a Young Lady

Jean-Jacques Rousseau
“The world of reality has its limits; the world of imagination is boundless.”
Jean-Jacques Rousseau

Jean-Jacques Rousseau
“The indolence I love is not that of a lazy fellow who sits with his arms across in total inaction, and thinks no more than he acts, but that of a child which is incessantly in motion doing nothing, and that of a dotard who wanders from his subject. I love to amuse myself with trifles, by beginning a hundred things and never finishing one of them, by going or coming as I take either into my head, by changing my project at every instant, by following a fly through all its windings, in wishing to overturn a rock to see what is under it, by undertaking with ardor the work of ten years, and abandoning it without regret at the end of ten minutes; finally, in musing from morning until night without order or coherence, and in following in everything the caprice of a moment.”
Jean-Jacques Rousseau, Confessions

Samuel Richardson
“Pray , Mr Tomlinson, be seated. He took his chair over against her. I stood behind hers, that I might give him agreed-upon signals should there be occasions for them.
A thus-A wink of the left eye was to signify, Push that point, captain.
A wink of the right, and a nod was to indicate approbation of what he said.
My forefinger held up, and biting my lip, Get off of that as fast as possible.
A right forward nod, and a frown-Swear to it Captain.
My whole spread hand, To take care not to say too much on that particuliar subject.”
Samuel Richardson, Clarissa, or, the History of a Young Lady

Samuel Richardson
“By my soul, I can neither eat, drink, nor sleep; nor, what's still worse, love any woman in the world but her.”
Samuel Richardson, Clarissa, or, the History of a Young Lady
