C.N. Douglas, comp.  Forty Thousand Quotations: Prose and Poetical.  1917.
  God is with the patient.  1
  Haste is of the devil.  2
  If ye do well, to your own behoof will ye do it; and if ye do evil, against yourselves will ye do it.  3
  Prayer carries us half way to God, fasting brings us to the door of His palace and alms-giving procures us admission.  4
  That which God writes on thy forehead thou wilt come to.  5
  There is no God but God, the living, the self-subsisting.  6
  To God belongeth the east and the west; therefore, whithersoever ye turn yourselves to pray, there is the word of God; for God is omnipresent and omniscient.  7
  When a man dies they who survive him ask what property he has left behind. The angel who bends over the dying man asks what good deeds he has sent before him.  8
  When we are saluted with a salutation, salute the person with a better salutation, or at least return the same, for God taketh an account of all things.  9
