C.N. Douglas, comp.  Forty Thousand Quotations: Prose and Poetical.  1917.

  Logic is the science of the laws of thought, as thought,—that is of the necessary conditions to which thought considered in itself is a subject.  4
  Man is not an organism; he is an intelligence served by organs.  5
  Metaphysics, in whatever latitude the term be taken, is a science, or complement of sciences, exclusively occupied with mind.  6
  Read much, but not many works.  7
  There is a distinction, but no opposition, between theory and practice. Each to a certain extent supposes the other. Theory is dependent on practice; practice must have preceded theory.  8
