C.N. Douglas, comp.  Forty Thousand Quotations: Prose and Poetical.  1917.
 
Nabb
 
        It is the curse of greatness
To be its own destruction.
  1
                Philosophy, religious solitude
And labour wait on temperance; in these
Desire is bounded; they instruct the mind’s
And body’s action.
  2
                    Treachery oft lurks
In compliments. You have sent so many posts
Of undertakings, they outride performance;
And make me think your fair pretences aim
At some intended ill, which my prevention
Must strive to avert.
  3
              What can we not endure,
When pains are lessen’d by the hope of cure?
  4
  Fortitude is not the appetite of formidable things, nor inconsult rashness; but virtue fighting for a truth, derived from knowledge of distinguishing good or bad causes.  5
  It is, indeed, a blessing, when the virtues of noble races are hereditary; and do derive themselves from the imitation of virtuous ancestors.  6
  There’s not so much danger in a known foe as a suspected friend.  7
