Джозеф Аддисон


Joseph Addison (1672-1719)
English essayist, poet, playwright, politician


  • Books are the legacies that a great genius leaves to mankind, which are delivered down from generation to generation, as presents to the posterity of those who are yet unborn.

  • Cheerfulness is...the best promoter of health.

  • Knowledge is, indeed, that which, next to virtue, truly and essentially raises one man above another.

  • Man is distinguished from all other creatures by the faculty of laughter.

  • Modesty is not only an ornament, but also a guard to virtue.

  • Reading is to the mind what exercise is to the body.

  • There is nothing which we receive with so much reluctance as advice.

  • True happiness is of a retired nature, and an enemy to pomp and noise; it arises, in the first place, from the enjoyment of one's self, and in the next, from the friendship and conversation of a few select companions.

  • Were I to prescribe a rule for drinking, it should be formed upon a saying quoted by Sir William Temple: the first glass for myself, the second for my friends, the third for good humor, and the fourth for mine enemies.
