Famous quotes containing the word actuated:

    Lady Dellwyn ... for the first time began to entertain some suspicions that she had a heart to bestow. Not that she was actuated by that romantic passion which creates indifference to every other object and makes all happiness to consist in pleasing the beloved person, [but] only overstraining delicacy so much as to feel it almost a crime to charm any other.
    Sarah Fielding (1710–1768)

    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
