James Wood, comp.  Dictionary of Quotations.  1899.
C. Kingsley
  But men must work, and women must weep, / Though storms be sudden and waters deep, / And the harbour bar be moaning.  1
  Do the duty that lies nearest to you. Every duty which is bidden to wait returns with seven fresh duties at its back.  2
  Duty—the command of Heaven, the eldest voice of God.  3
  Each man can learn something from his neighbour: at least he can learn to have patience with him—to live and let live.  4
  Feelings are like chemicals; the more you analyse them, the worse they smell.  5
  Jealousy is often the helpmate of sweet love.  6
  No earnest thinker is a plagiarist pure and simple. He will never borrow from others that which he has not already, more or less, thought out for himself.  7
  The world goes up, and the world goes down, / And the sunshine follows the rain; / And yesterday’s sneer, and yesterday’s frown, / Can never come over again.  8
