C.N. Douglas, comp.  Forty Thousand Quotations: Prose and Poetical.  1917.
  By silence, I hear other men’s imperfections and conceal my own.  1
  Extravagance is its own destroyer.  2
  Man seems to be deficient in nothing so much as he is in time.  3
  No evil is honorable: but death is honorable; therefore death is not evil.  4
  The avaricious man is like the barren, sandy ground of the desert, which sucks in all the rain and dews with greediness, but yields no fruitful herbs or plants for the benefit of others.  5
  The voice is the flower of beauty.  6
