C.N. Douglas, comp.  Forty Thousand Quotations: Prose and Poetical.  1917.
  A docile disposition will, with application, surmount every difficulty.  1
  Every one is the poorer in proportion as he has more wants, and counts not what he has, but wishes only what he has not.  2
  Everyone is in a small way the image of God.  3
  Everything that is created is changed by the laws of man; the earth does not know itself in the revolution of years; even the races of man assume various forms in the course of ages.  4
  It is shameful for a man to live as a stranger in his own country, and to be uninformed of her affairs and interests.  5
  No barriers, no masses of matter, however enormous, can withstand the powers of the mind; the remotest corners yield to them; all things succumb, the very heaven itself is laid open.  6
  The hours fly along in a circle.  7
  There is a warp of evil woven in the woof of good.  8
  Time stands with impartial law.  9
  We are dying from our very birth, and our end hangs on our beginning.  10
  Who can know heaven except by its gifts? and who can find out God unless the man who is himself an emanation from God?  11
