Quotations for volume

Nature is a volume of which God is the author. [ Harvey ]

Every man is a volume if you know bow to read him. [ Channing ]

Love - what a volume in a word, an ocean in a tear! [ Tupper ]

One anecdote of a man is worth a volume of biography. [ Channing ]

Sunday is the golden clasp that binds the volume of the week. [ Henry Wadsworth Longfellow ]

That same face of yours looks like the title-page to a whole volume of roguery. [ Colley Gibber ]

Flirtation is a circulating library, in which we seldom ask twice for the same volume. [ N. P. Willis ]

A stray volume of real life in the daily packet of the postman. Eternal love and instant payment. [ Douglas Jerrold ]

What a volume could be written on the word mother; what a history of forbearance, of kindness, and of love. [ James Ellis ]

Much depends upon when and where you read a book. In the five or six impatient minutes before the dinner is quite ready, who would think of taking up the Faerie Queen for a stopgap, or a volume of Bishop Andrews's Sermons? [ Lamb ]

Those orators who give us much noise and many words, but little argument and less wit, and who are the loudest when least lucid, should take a lesson from the great volume of nature; she often gives us the lightning without the thunder, but never the thunder without the lightning. [ Burritt ]

How idle a boast, after all, is the immortality of a name! Time is ever silently turning over his pages; we are too much engrossed by the story of the present to think of the character and anecdotes that gave interest to the past; and each age is a volume thrown aside and forgotten. [ Washington Irving ]

Talk to the point, and stop when you have reached it. The faculty some possess of making one idea cover a quire of paper is not good for much. Be comprehensive in all you say or write. To fill a volume upon nothing is a credit to nobody; though Lord Chesterfield wrote a very clever poem upon nothing. [ John Neal ]

A few words worthy to be remembered suffice to give an idea of a great mind. There are single thoughts that contain the essence of a whole volume, single sentences that have the beauties of a large work, a simplicity so finished and so perfect that it equals in merit and in excellence a large and glorious composition. [ Joubert ]

I suppose as long as novels last, and authors aim at interesting their public, there must always be in the story a virtuous and gallant hero; a wicked monster, his opposite; and a pretty girl, who finds a champion. Bravery and virtue conquer beauty; and vice, after seeming to triumph through a certain number of pages, is sure to be discomfited in the last volume, when justice overtakes him, and honest folks come by their own. [ Thackeray ]
