C.N. Douglas, comp.  Forty Thousand Quotations: Prose and Poetical.  1917.
 
Duplicity
 
        Where nature’s end of language is declined,
And men talk only to conceal the mind.
Young.    
  1
        Damn with faint praise, assent with civil leer,
And, without sneering, teach the rest to sneer;
Willing to wound, and yet afraid to strike,
Just hint a fault, and hesitate dislike.
Pope.    
  2
  I, I, I myself, sometimes, leaving the fear of heaven on the left hand, and hiding mine honor in my necessity, am fain to shuffle, to hedge, and to lurch.
Shakespeare.    
  3
        O, what may man within him hide,
Though angel on the outward side.
Shakespeare.    
  4
  One dupe is as impossible as one twin.
John Sterling.
