„Yet malice never was his aim;
He lashed the vice but spared the name.
No individual could resent,
Where thousands equally were meant.“

—  Jonathan Swift

Verses on the Death of Dr. Swift (1731), l. 459
Kontextus: Yet malice never was his aim;
He lashed the vice but spared the name.
No individual could resent,
Where thousands equally were meant.
His satire points at no defect
But what all mortals may correct;
For he abhorred that senseless tribe
Who call it humor when they gibe.

„Vision is the Art of seeing Things invisible.“

—  Jonathan Swift

Thoughts on various subjects (Further thoughts on various subjects) (1745)

„Falsehood flies, and truth comes limping after it“

—  Jonathan Swift

The Examiner No. XIV (Thursday, November 9th, 1710)
Kontextus: Falsehood flies, and truth comes limping after it, so that when men come to be undeceived, it is too late; the jest is over, and the tale hath had its effect: like a man, who hath thought of a good repartee when the discourse is changed, or the company parted; or like a physician, who hath found out an infallible medicine, after the patient is dead.
