C.N. Douglas, comp.  Forty Thousand Quotations: Prose and Poetical.  1917.
 
Thomas Hughes
 
  A fop who admires his person in a glass soon enters into a resolution of making his fortune by it, not questioning that every woman who falls in his way will do him as much justice as himself.  1
  Christ’s whole life on earth was the assertion and example of true manliness—the setting forth in living act and word what man is meant to be, and how he should carry himself in this world of God—one long campaign in which the “temptation” stands out as the first great battle and victory.  2
  From behind the shadow of the still small voice—more awful than tempest or earthquake—more sure and persistent than day and night—is always sounding full of hope and strength to the weariest of us all, “Be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.”  3
  He went down to the school with a glimmering of another lesson in his heart,—the lesson that he who has conquered his own coward spirit has conquered the whole outward world.  4
  If we look abroad upon the great multitude of mankind, and endeavor to trace out the principles of action in every individual, it will, I think, seem highly probable that ambition runs through the whole species, and that every man, in proportion to the vigor of his complexion, is more or less actuated by it.  5
  Mere bashfulness without merit is awkward.  6
  No woman can be handsome by the force of features alone, any more than she can be witty only by the help of speech.  7
  The conscience of every man recognizes courage as the foundation of manliness, and manliness as the perfection of human character.  8
