C.N. Douglas, comp.  Forty Thousand Quotations: Prose and Poetical.  1917.
Samuel Lover
                Her beads while she numbered,
        The baby still slumbered,
And smiled in her face, as she bended her knee;
        Oh! bless’d be that warning,
        My child, thy sleep adorning,
For I know that the angels are whispering with thee.
        I’ll seek a four-leaved shamrock in all the fairy dells,
And if I find the charmèd leaves, oh, how I’ll weave my spells!
  Circumstances are the rulers of the weak; they are but the instruments of the wise.  3
  For dhrames always go by conthraries, my dear.  4
  Reproof on her lip, but a smile in her eye.  5
  There’s luck in odd numbers.  6
