James Wood, comp.  Dictionary of Quotations.  1899.
Allan Ramsay
  Farewell to Lochaber, farewell to my Jean, / Where heartsome wi’ thee I hae mony days been; / For Lochaber no more, Lochaber no more, / We’ll maybe return to Lochaber no more.  1
  Good manners give integrity a bleeze, / When native virtues join the arts to please.  2
  He that has just enough can soundly sleep; / The o’ercome only fashes fowk to keep.  3
  Let fouk bode weel, and strive to do their best; / Nae mair’s required; let Heaven mak’ out the rest.  4
  Nineteen nay-says are half a grant.  5
  The best is but in season best.  6
  Thrice happy life that’s from ambition free.  7
  What signifies your gear? / A mind that’s scrimpit never wants some care.  8
  What was my morning’s thought, at night’s the same; / The poor and rich but differ in the name. / Content’s the greatest bliss we can procure / Frae ’boon the lift; without it kings are poor.  9
