Between flattery and admiration there often flows a river of contempt.
We must always remember with gratitude and admiration the first sailors who steered their vessels through storms and mists, and increased our knowledge of the lands of ice in the South.
“Enthusiastic admiration is the first principle of knowledge and the last”
It is our ignorance of things that causes all our admiration and chiefly excites our passions.
Woman is not made to be the admiration of all, but the happiness of one.
