|C.N. Douglas, comp. Forty Thousand Quotations: Prose and Poetical. 1917.|
| ||When any great design thou dost intend,|
|Think on the means, the manner, and the end.|
| || Honest designs|
|Justly resemble our devotions,|
|Which we must pay and wait for the reward.|
Sir Robert Howard.
| ||He that intends well, yet deprives himself|
|Of means to put his good thoughts into deed,|
|Deceives his purpose of the due reward.|
Beaumont and Fletcher.
| ||When mens intents are wicked, their guilt haunts them,|
|But when they are just theyre armd, and nothing daunts them.|
