C.N. Douglas, comp.  Forty Thousand Quotations: Prose and Poetical.  1917.
        I could live in the woods with thee in sight,
  Where never should human foot intrude:
Or with thee find light in the darkest night,
  And a social crowd in solitude.
  Dare to act! Even Venus aids the bold.  2
  Esteem all things that are good.  3
  Fear not to swear; the winds carry the perjuries of lovers without effect over land and sea, thanks to Jupiter. The father of the gods himself has denied effect to what foolish lovers in their eagerness have sworn.  4
  Happy thou that learnest from another’s griefs, not to subject thyself to the same.  5
  Hope ever urges on, and tells us to-morrow will be better.  6
  When thou art preparing to commit a sin, think not that thou wilt conceal it; there is a God that forbids crimes to be hidden.  7
