C.N. Douglas, comp.  Forty Thousand Quotations: Prose and Poetical.  1917.
Mme. Dufresnoy
  A gentleman is always a gentleman; but the butterflies of society differ as much in their moods as does that insect in its colors.  1
  And by and by, will there come a time, when souls congenial will no more say adieu?  2
  Obtuseness is the rule, not the exception.  3
  Weeping is not alone woman’s weapon, but also a specific for transient sorrows.  4
  Women are happier in their illusions than in their most agreeable experiences.  5
  Wrinkles of the face may be successfully hidden by art; not so with the wrinkles of the heart.  6
