C.N. Douglas, comp.  Forty Thousand Quotations: Prose and Poetical.  1917.
Madame de Genlis
  Do not sanction an absurdity.  1
  Familiarity is the most destructive of all iconoclasts.  2
  In our lonely hours we awake those sleeping images with which our memories are stored, and vitalize them again.  3
  It is chiefly through books that we enjoy intercourse with superior minds; and these invaluable communications are within the reach of all.  4
  Lucky people are her favorites.  5
  Sensibility cannot be acquired; people are born thus, or they have it not.  6
  Ugliness, after virtue, to the best guardian of a young woman.  7
