About Dame Anne Sebright-Lyttleton

"He that looks hereon may consider, how fleeting all worldly comforts are, and how great a vanity it is to place his affections thereon. Such things there are as worldly comforts 'tis true. But they ought to be looked on as little streams, and whoever delights in them more than in the fountain from whence they proceed may soon find them dry and vanished. The truth of which he that wrote this hath sensibly found, and wills others to place their affections chiefly on that object of love which is unchangeable and is the center of all true joy and lasting felicity."
