A Quote by William Hazlitt on death, earth, fear, glory, habits, hell, men, privilege, thought, and world

Men fear thought as they fear nothing else on earth - more than ruin - more even than death. . . . Thought is subversive and revolutionary, destructive and terrible, thought is merciless to privilege, established institutions, and comfortable habit. Thought looks into the pit of hell and is not afraid. Thought is great and swift and free, the light of the world, and the chief glory of man.

A Quote by William Hazlitt on defeat, driving, good, heart, individuality, kindness, miracles, order, persuasion, pride, respect, secrets, tyranny, violence, and work

Violence ever defeats its own ends. Where you cannot drive you can always persuade. A gentle word, a kind look, a good-natured smile can work wonders and accomplish miracles. There is a secret pride in every human heart that revolts at tyranny. You may order and drive an individual, but you cannot make him respect you.
