C.N. Douglas, comp.  Forty Thousand Quotations: Prose and Poetical.  1917.
  In a sound sleep the soul goes home to recruit her strength, which could not else endure the wear and tear of life.  1
  So long as we do not take even the injustice which is done us, and which forces the burning tears from us,—so long as we do not take even this for just and right, we are in the thickest darkness without dawn.  2
  The future does not come from before to meet us, but comes streaming up from behind over our heads.  3
  The less tenderness a man has in his nature, the more he requires from others.  4
  Those who completely sacrifice themselves are praised and admired; that is the sort of character men like to find in others.  5
  To have freedom is only to have that which is absolutely necessary to enable us to be what we ought to be, and to possess what we ought to possess.  6
