C.N. Douglas, comp.  Forty Thousand Quotations: Prose and Poetical.  1917.
Mme. Louise Colet
  Alas! how enthusiasm decreases as experience increases!  1
  Coquetry is the art of successful deception.  2
  Doubt the man who swears to his devotion.  3
  Flirtation and coquetry are so nearly allied as to be identical; both are the art of successful and pleasing deception.  4
  The happiest woman sees not gladness alone reflected from her mirror; its surface will inevitably be sometimes dimmed with sighs.  5
  The laws of decency enforce themselves.  6
  The rubbish of the past.  7
  Untimely conduct is the discord of manners.  8
  When greatness descends from its lofty pedestal, it assumes human dimensions.  9
