Best Quotes by John Lubbock (Top 10)

  1. Sunsets are so beautiful that they almost seem as if we were looking through the gates of Heaven.

  6. A day of worry is more exhausting than a week of work.
  7. What we see depends mainly on what we look for.
  8. The whole value of solitude depends upon oneself; it may be a sanctuary or a prison, a haven of repose or a place of punishment, a heaven or a hell, as we ourselves make it.
  9. Happiness is a thing to be practiced, like the violin.
  10. Don't be afraid of showing affection. Be warm and tender, thoughtful and affectionate. Men are more helped by sympathy than by service. Love is more than money, and a kind word will give more pleasure than a present.
