C.N. Douglas, comp.  Forty Thousand Quotations: Prose and Poetical.  1917.
                            Ye waves
That o’er th’ interminable ocean wreathe
Your crisped smiles.
  Be it mine to draw from wisdom’s fount, pure as it flows, that calm of soul which virtue only knows.  2
  He hears but half who hears one party only.  3
  Obedience is the mother of success.  4
  Success! to thee, as to a God, men bend the knee.  5
  The tongue of slander is too prompt with wanton malice to wound the stranger.  6
  Wiles and deceit are female qualities.  7
  Yet has the popular voice much potency.  8
