C.N. Douglas, comp.  Forty Thousand Quotations: Prose and Poetical.  1917.
 
France
 
  A monarchy tempered by songs.
Chamfort.    
  1
  Decayed in thy glory and sunk in thy worth.
Byron.    
  2
  France is a dog-hole, and it no more merits the tread of a man’s foot.
Shakespeare.    
  3
  Studious to please, and ready to submit; the supple Gaul was born a parasite.
Johnson.    
  4
        Gay, sprightly land of mirth and social ease,
Pleased with thyself, whom all the world can please.
Goldsmith.    
  5
        ’Tis better using France than trusting France;
Let us be back’d with God, and with the seas,
Which He hath given for fence impregnable,
And with their helps only defend ourselves;
In them, and in ourselves, our safety lies.
Shakespeare.    
  6
