C.N. Douglas, comp.  Forty Thousand Quotations: Prose and Poetical.  1917.
 
Servitude
 
  It is fit and necessary that some persons in the world should be in love with a splendid servitude.
South.    
  1
  Corrupted freemen are the worst of slaves.
Garrick.    
  2
  Servitude seizes on few, but many seize on her.
Seneca.    
  3
  Slavery is as ancient as war, and war as human nature.
Voltaire.    
  4
  Servitude is inherent; we are all slaves to duty or to force.
Marguerite de Valois.    
  5
  All are born to observe laws; few are born to establish them.
Carlyle.    
  6
  We become willing servants to the good by the bonds their virtues lay upon us.
Sir P. Sidney.    
  7
  To use the hands in making quicklime into mortar is better than to cross them on the breast in attendance on a prince.
Saadi.    
  8
  I have been formerly so silly as to hope that every servant I had might be made a friend; I am now convinced that the nature of servitude generally bears a contrary tendency. People’s characters are to be chiefly collected from their education and place in life; birth itself does but little.
Shenstone.    
  9
  Men in great places are thrice servants,—servants of the sovereign or state, servants of fame, and servants of business; so that they have no freedom, neither in their persons, nor in their actions, nor in their times.
Bacon.    
  10
