C.N. Douglas, comp.  Forty Thousand Quotations: Prose and Poetical.  1917.
Mrs. Barbauld
  It is to hope, though hope were lost.  1
  Meek-eyed Eve, her cheek yet warm with blushes, slow retires through the Hesperian gardens of the west, and shuts the gates of day.  2
  Sweet daughter of a rough and stormy sire, hoar Winter’s blooming child, delightful Spring.  3
  The first pale blossom of the unripened year.  4
  The harvest song of inward peace.  5
  This dead of midnight is the noon of thought, and wisdom mounts her zenith with the stars.  6
  Twin sister of awkwardness.  7
  Wisdom mounts her zenith with the stars.  8
  Wisdom! I bless thy gentle sway, and ever, ever will obey.  9
  With regard to the choice of friends, there is little to say; for a friend is never chosen. A secret sympathy, the attraction of a thousand nameless qualities, a charm in the expression of the countenance, even in the voice or manner, a similarity of circumstances,—these are the things that begin attachment.  10
