C.N. Douglas, comp.  Forty Thousand Quotations: Prose and Poetical.  1917.
 
Jeering
 
  Abstain from dissolute laughter, uncomely jests, loud talking, and jeering.
Jeremy Taylor.    
  1
  Scoff not at the natural defects of any which are not in their power to amend. Oh, it is cruel to beat a cripple with his own crutches.
Fuller.    
  2
  Jeer not others upon any occasion. If they be foolish, God hath denied them understanding; if they be vicious, you ought to pity, not revile them; if deformed, God framed their bodies, and will you scorn His workmanship? Are you wiser than your Creator? If poor, poverty was designed for a motive to charity, not to contempt; you cannot see what riches they have within.
South.
