William Hazlitt: Are you at peace with yourself?
Those who are at war with others,
are not at peace with themselves.
William Hazlitt (10 April 1778 - 18 September 1830) was an English writer, remembered for his humanistic essays and literary criticism, as the greatest art critic of his age, and as a drama critic, social commentator, and philosopher. He was also a painter. He is now considered one of the great critics and essayists of the English language, placed in the company of Samuel Johnson and George Orwell. Yet his work is currently little read and mostly out of print.
