James Wood, comp.  Dictionary of Quotations.  1899.
 
Jane Porter
 
  Guilt is a spiritual Rubicon.  1
  Nobility without virtue is a fine setting without a gem.  2
  The mob is a sort of bear: while your ring is through its nose, it will even dance under your cudgel; but should the ring slip and you lose your hold, the brute will turn and rend you.  3
