C.N. Douglas, comp.  Forty Thousand Quotations: Prose and Poetical.  1917.
  Master, I marvel how the fishes live in the sea.
  Why, as men do a-land: the great ones eat up the little ones.
  Not to be able to bear poverty is a shameful thing, but not to know how to chase it away by work is a more shameful thing yet.  2
  She is best who is least spoken of among men, whether for good or evil.  3
  Time is the wisest counsellor.  4
  ’Tis time to fear when tyrants seem to kiss.  5
  Who makes the fairest show means most deceit.  6
