C.N. Douglas, comp.  Forty Thousand Quotations: Prose and Poetical.  1917.
Thomas Wilson
  A good judge should never boast of his power, because he can do nothing but what he can do justly: he is not the master, but the minister of the law. Authority without virtue is a very dangerous state.  1
  A great man is made so for others.  2
  Faith is the root of works. A root that produceth nothing is dead.  3
  Friendship is to be purchased only by friendship. A man may have authority over others, but he can never have their heart but by giving his own.  4
  He who loves praise, loves temptation.  5
  Intemperance in talk makes a dreadful havoc in the heart.  6
  Labor, therefore, is a duty from which no man living is exempt, without forfeiting his right to his daily bread.  7
  No inheritance can supply the want of a virtuous education.  8
  Our life must answer for our faith.  9
  The fewer desires, the more peace.  10
