Quotes by Samuel Butler
God's merits are so transcendent that it is not surprising his faults should be in reasonable proportion.
Sing, O goddess, the anger of Achilles son of Peleus, that brought countless ills upon the Achaeans.

A hen is only an egg's way of making another egg.
The Discobolus is put here because he is vulgar -
He has neither vest nor pants with which to cover his limbs.
The man who lets himself be bored is even more contemptible than the bore.
Life is like playing a violin solo in public and learning the instrument as one goes on.
