George Borrow
Quotations


I have always been a friend to hero-worship; it is the only rational one, and has always been in use amongst civilized people--the worship of spirits is synonymous with barbarism--it is mere fetish. There is something philosophic in the worship of the heroes of the human race.

There's night and day, brother, both sweet things; sun, moon, and stars, brother, all sweet things; there's likewise a wind on the heath. Life is very sweet, brother; who would wish to die?

Next to the love of God, the love of country is the best preventive of crime.

I am invariably of the politics of the people at whose table I sit, or beneath whose roof I sleep.

If you must commit suicide . . . always contrive to do it as decorously as possible; the decencies, whether of life or of death, should never be lost sight of.
