James Wood, comp.  Dictionary of Quotations.  1899.
  Each good thought or action moves / The dark world nearer to the sun.  1
  Few have borne unconsciously the spell of loveliness.  2
  For of all sad words of tongue or pen, / The saddest were these: “It might have been.”  3
  God blesses still the generous thought, / And still the fitting word He speeds, / And truth, at His requiring taught, / He quickens into deeds.  4
  Grant but memory to us, and we can lose nothing by death.  5
  Man is more than constitutions.  6
  The good is always beautiful, the beautiful is good.  7
  The steps of faith fall on the seeming void, and find the rock beneath.  8
  The time for words has passed, and deeds alone suffice.  9
