More From Washington Irving
- "He is the true enchanter, whose spell operates, not upon the senses, but upon the imagination and the heart."
- "A tart temper never mellows with age, and a sharp tongue is the only edged tool that grows keener with constant use."
- "An inexhaustible good nature is one of the most precious gifts of heaven, spreading itself like oil over the troubled sea of thought, and keeping the mind smooth and equable in the roughest weather."
More In Smile
- "In masks outrageous and austere, The years go by in single file; But none has merited my fear, And none has quite escaped my smile."― Elinor Wylie
- "A smile is the chosen vehicle of all ambiguities."― Herman Melville
- "I will go to the next election saying to Australians, vote for me, vote for the Liberal Party, and I will become your PM. So I’m offering myself as the alternative PM – that’s one way people describe the Leader of the Opposition – but I’m not in politics for myself to realize a personal ambition."― Malcolm Turnbull
