Patience is sorrow's salve.Charles Churchill The Prophecy of Famine.
Salve to thy sores, apt words have power to suage The tumours of a troubl'd mind, And are as Balm to fester'd wounds.john milton
Robinson Crusoe did not deal with love. Defoe's other stories, which are happily forgotten, are bad in their very essence. Roxana is an accurate example of what a bad book may be. It relates the adventures of a woman thoroughly depraved, and yet for the most part successful, -- is intended to attract by licentiousness, and puts off till the end the stale scrap of morality which is brought in as a salve to the conscience of the writer. Putting aside Robinson Crusoe, which has been truly described as an accident, Defoe's teaching as a novelist has been altogether bad.Daniel Defoe
