Lord Halifax

Hope is generally a wrong guide, though it is very good company by the way.

No matter how hot it gets in the daytime in Hollywood it's always dull at night.

The sudden disappointment of a hope leaves a scar which the ultimate fulfillment of that hope never entirely removes.

What is amusing now had to be taken in desperate earnest once.


If you want to make people weep, you must weep yourself. If you want to make people laugh, you must remain serious.

Hope is itself a species of happiness and perhaps the chief happiness which this world affords.

Ignorance is of a peculiar nature; once dispelled, it is impossible to reestablish it.

Francis Bacon

Hope is a good breakfast, but it is a bad supper.
