C.N. Douglas, comp.  Forty Thousand Quotations: Prose and Poetical.  1917.
Mme. du Deffand
  A beautiful verso, an apt remark, or a well-turned phrase, appropriately quoted, is always effective and charming.  1
  Heed the still, small voice that so seldom leads us wrong, and never into folly.  2
  How happy one would be if one could throw off one’s self as one throws off others!  3
  Impromptu thoughts are mental wild-flowers.  4
  Let us strive to improve ourselves, for we cannot remain stationary: one either progresses or retrogrades.  5
  The distance is nothing; it is only the first step that costs.  6
  The heart gnawing on itself.  7
  Women are never stronger than when they arm themselves in their weakness.  8
