James Wood, comp.  Dictionary of Quotations.  1899.
 
Delille
 
  Le sort fait les parents, le choix fait les amis—It is to chance we owe our relatives, to choice our friends.  1
  Our relations are ours by lot, our friends by election.  2
  Promettre c’est donner, espérer c’est jouir.  3
  To promise is already to give, to hope already to enjoy.  4
  Tremblez, tyrans; vous êtes immortels—Tremble, ye tyrants; ye cannot die.  5
