C.N. Douglas, comp.  Forty Thousand Quotations: Prose and Poetical.  1917.
 
Lord Lansdowne
 
        Fate holds the strings, and men like children, move
But as they’re led; success is from above.
  1
        One destin’d period men in common have,
The great, the base, the coward, and the brave,
All food alike for worms, companions in the grave.
  2
        The kiss you take is paid by that you give:
The joy is mutual, and I’m still in debt.
  3
        Thy thoughts to nobler meditations give,
And study how to die, not how to live.
  4
        ’Tis sweet to love; but when with scorn we meet,
Revenge supplies the loss with joys as great.
  5
  To die and part is a less evil; but to part and live, there, there is the torment.  6
  To doubt is an injury; to suspect a friend is breach of friendship; jealousy is a seed sown but in vicious minds; prone to distrust, because apt to deceive.  7
