C.N. Douglas, comp.  Forty Thousand Quotations: Prose and Poetical.  1917.
Le Sage
  Evil tongues never want a whet.  1
  Facts are stubborn things.  2
  I am quite my own master, agreeably lodged, perfectly easy in my circumstances. I am contented with my situation, and happy because I think myself so.  3
  I wish you all sorts of prosperity, with a little more taste.  4
  Mutual content is like a river, which must have its banks on either side.  5
  Naked glory is the true and honorable recompense of gallant actions.  6
  Pride and conceit were the original sin of man.  7
  The pleasure of talking is the inextinguishable passion of woman, coeval with the act of breathing.  8
