James Wood, comp.  Dictionary of Quotations.  1899.
 
John Foster
 
  All pleasure must be bought at the price of pain.  1
  Fine feelings, without vigour of reason, are in the situation of the extreme feathers of a peacock’s tail—dragging in the mud.  2
  For the true the price is paid before you enjoy it; for the false, after you enjoy it.  3
  Polished steel will not shine in the dark; no more can reason, however refined, shine efficaciously but as it reflects the fight of Divine truth shed from heaven.  4
