„All men who have turned out worth anything have had the chief hand in their own education.“

— Walter Scott
Letter to J. G. Lockhart (c. 16 June 1830), in H. J. C. Grierson (ed.), Letters of Sir Walter Scott, Vol. II (1936), as reported in The Oxford Dictionary of Quotations (1999), p. 652

„True love's the gift which God has given
To man alone beneath the heaven“

— Walter Scott
Context: True love's the gift which God has given To man alone beneath the heaven: It is not fantasy's hot fire, Whose wishes, soon as granted, fly; It liveth not in fierce desire, With dead desire it doth not die; It is the secret sympathy, The silver link, the silken tie, Which heart to heart, and mind to mind In body and in soul can bind. Canto V, stanza 13.

„The will to do, the soul to dare“

— Walter Scott
Context: On his bold visage middle age Had slightly pressed its signet sage, Yet had not quenched the open truth And fiery vehemence of youth; Forward and frolic glee was there, The will to do, the soul to dare, The sparkling glance, soon blown to fire, Of hasty love or headlong ire. Canto I, stanza 21.

„Time will rust the sharpest sword,
Time will consume the strongest cord“

— Walter Scott
Context: Time will rust the sharpest sword, Time will consume the strongest cord; That which molders hemp and steel, Mortal arm and nerve must feel. Harold the Dauntless (1817), Canto I, st. 4.

„Love rules the court, the camp, the grove, and men below, and the saints above, for love is heaven, and heaven is love.“

— Walter Scott
Context: In peace, Love tunes the shepherd's reed; In war, he mounts the warrior's steed; In halls, in gay attire is seen; In hamlets, dances on the green. Love rules the court, the camp, the grove, And men below, and saints above; For love is heaven, and heaven is love. Canto III, stanza 2.
