C.N. Douglas, comp.  Forty Thousand Quotations: Prose and Poetical.  1917.
        With vivid words your just conceptions grace,
Much truth compressing in a narrow space;
Then many shall peruse, but few complain,
And envy frown, and critics snarl in vain.
  Envy, the attendant of the empty mind.  2
  Every gift which is given, even though it be small, is in reality great, if it be given with affection.  3
  Finding that the middle condition of life is by far the happiest, I look with little favor upon that of princes.  4
  He is gifted with genius who knoweth much by natural inspiration.  5
  Point thy tongue on the anvil of truth.  6
  Some one has said of a fine and honorable old age, that it was the childhood of immortality.  7
