↑# Quotations for

whence

And all are dead beside;

For other source than God is none

Whence life can be supplied. [ William Cowper ]

Whence is thy learning? hath thy toil

O'er books consumed the midnight oil? [ Gay ]

Having is having, come whence it may. [ German Proverb ]

It heeds not whence begins our thinking,

If to the end its flight is high. [ Dr. Johnson ]

All are good maids, but whence come the bad wives? [ Proverb ]

How dare the plants look up to heaven, from whence

They have their nourishment? [ William Shakespeare ]

Money, thou bane and bliss and source of woe,

Whence com'st thou, that thou art so fresh and fine?

I know thy parentage is base and low:

Man found thee poor and dirty in a mine. [ Herbert ]

Throw no stones into the well whence you have drunk. [ Talmud ]

Whence? whither? why? how? - these questions cover all philosophy. [ Joubert ]

The plants look up to heaven, from whence they have their nourishment. [ Shakespeare ]

Whence you have got your wealth, nobody inquires; but you must have it. [ Juv ]

Since all the maids are good and lovable, from whence come the evil wives? [ Lamb ]

The moods of love are like the wind; and none knows whence or why they rise. [ Patmore ]

When a few years are come, then I shall go the way whence I shall not return. [ Bible ]

Let every one inquire of himself what he loveth, and he shall resolve himself of whence he is a citizen. [ S. Augustine ]

Child of mortality, whence comest thou? Why is thy countenance sad, and why are thine eyes red with weeping? [ Anna Letitia Barbauld ]

The feather whence the pen was shaped that traced the lives of these good men, dropped from an angel's wing. [ Wordsworth ]

The greater absurdities are, the more strongly they evince the falsity at that supposition from whence they flow. [ Atterbury ]

Libraries are the wardrobes of our literature, whence men, properly informed, might bring something for ornament, much for curiosity, and more for use. [ J. Dyer ]

Love is - I know not what; which comes - I know not whence; which is formed - I know not how; which enchants - I know not by what; and which ends - I know not when or why. [ Mlle. de Scuderi ]

We content ourselves to present to thinking minds the original seeds from whence spring vast fields of new thought, that may be further cultivated, beautified, and enlarged. [ Chevalier Ramsay ]

Every man may be, and at some time is, lifted to a platform whence he looks beyond sense to moral and spiritual truth, and in that mood he strings words like beads upon his thought. [ Ralph Waldo Emerson ]

Superstition is inherent in man's nature; and when we think it is wholly eradicated, it takes refuge in the strangest holes and corners, whence it peeps out all at once, as soon as it can do so with safety. [ Johann Wolfgang von Goethe ]

To know by rote is no knowledge: it is only a retention of what is intrusted to the memory. That which a man truly knows may be disposed of without regard to the author, or reference to the book from whence he had it. [ Montaigne ]

A very small offence may be a just cause for great resentment: it is often much less the particular instance which is obnoxious to us than the proof if carries with it of the general tenor and disposition of the mind from whence it sprung. [ Greville ]

We may scatter the seeds of courtesy and kindness around us at so little expense. Some of them will inevitably fall on good ground, and grow up into benevolence in the minds of others; and all of them will bear fruit of happiness in the bosom whence they spring. [ Bentham ]

Enthusiasm is that secret and harmonious spirit which hovers over the production of genius, throwing the reader of a book, or the spectator of a statue, into the very ideal presence whence these works have really originated. A great work always leaves us in a state of musing. [ Isaac Disraeli ]

It deserves to be considered that boldness is ever blind, for it sees not dangers and inconveniences. Whence it is bad in council though good in execution. The right use of bold persons, therefore, is that they never command in chief, but serve as seconds, under the direction of others. For in council it is good to see dangers, and in execution not to see them unless they are very great. [ Bacon ]
