Anna Seward quotes

  • To be happy we must not be too concerned with others.

  • The most important thing is to enjoy your life - to be happy - it's all that matters.

  • I have the happy circumstance of either being accused of political grandstanding on the one hand or cover-ups on the other.

  • Even a happy life cannot be without a measure of darkness, and the word happy would lose its meaning if it were not balanced by sadness. It is far better take things as they come along with patience and equanimity.

  • Let me pass, I have to follow them, I am their leader.

  • Let me love you, but don't love me back. Do love me and let me hate you for a while. Let me feel like I have some control, because I know I never do.

  • If a guy was like, 'Let me serenade you,' and it was bad, and I had to lie about it - can't have it.

  • The Lord has been with me throughout my life. He's never let me down.

  • Always to be best, and distinguished above the rest.

  • Do not try to paint the grandiose thing. Paint the commonplace so that it will be distinguished.
