C.N. Douglas, comp.  Forty Thousand Quotations: Prose and Poetical.  1917.
Von Knebel
  He who can take advice is sometimes superior to him who can give it.  1
  Hope awakens courage. He who can implant courage in the human soul is the best physician.  2
  Sceptics are generally ready to believe anything, provided it is sufficiently improbable.  3
  The sceptic only stumbles at matter of fact.  4
  True hope is based on the energy of character. A strong mind always hopes, and has always cause to hope, because it knows the mutability of human affairs, and how slight a circumstance may change the whole course of events. Such a spirit, too, rests upon itself; it is not confined to partial views or to one particular object. And if at last all should be lost, it has saved itself.  5
