Douglas William Jerrold
1803 – 1857
Who was Douglas William Jerrold?
- The sharp employ the sharp.
- Love's like the measles; all the worse when it comes late in life.
- He was so benevolent, so merciful a man that, in his mistaken passion, he would have held an umbrella over a duck in a shower of rain.
- Not peace at any price! Chains are worse than bayonets.
- The best thing I know between France and England is the sea.
- Happiness grows at our own firesides, and is not to be picked in stranger's gardens.
- Marriage is like wine. It is not properly judged until the second glass.
- He is one of those wise philanthropists who, in a time of famine, would vote for nothing, but a supply of toothpicks.
- Even the worse of jobs has their pleasures, if I were a grave digger or a hangmen, there are some people I could work for with a great deal of enjoyment.
- In this world truth can wait; she is used to it.
