C.N. Douglas, comp.  Forty Thousand Quotations: Prose and Poetical.  1917.
  Rhetoric is nothing but reason well dressed and argument put in order.
Jeremy Collier.    
  The two best rules for a system of rhetoric are: first, have something to say; and next, say it.
George Emmons.    
  Rhetoric is the creature of art, which he who feels least will most excel in; it is the quackery of eloquence, and deals in nostrums, not in cures.
  There is a truth and beauty in rhetoric; but it oftener serves ill turns than good ones.
William Penn.    
  Rhetoric in serious discourses is like the flowers in corn; pleasing to those who come only for amusement, but prejudicial to him who would reap profit from it.
