Joseph Addison

1672 - 1719

A Quote by Joseph Addison on admiration, discovery, familiarity, life, miracles, and passion

Admiration is a very short-lived passion that decays on growing familiar with its object unless it be still fed with fresh discoveries and kept alive by perpetual miracles rising up to its view.

A Quote by Joseph Addison on day, lies, life, mankind, practice, seasons, strength, and work

The Gods in bounty work up storms about us, that give mankind occasion to exert their hidden strength, and throw our into practice virtues that shun the day, and lie concealed in the smooth seasons and the calms of life.
