C.N. Douglas, comp.  Forty Thousand Quotations: Prose and Poetical.  1917.
Miss Braddon
  A modern writer likens coquettes to those hunters who do not eat the game which they have successfully pursued.  1
  Amiability is the redeeming quality of fools.  2
  Guilt soon learns to lie.  3
  How chronic is the unconcern of men and women of the world!  4
  Our virtues, as well as our vices, are often scourges for our own backs.  5
  Talent is always queer-tempered.  6
  That exuberant age when all fresh fancies are fevers.  7
  The strongest proof of repentance is the endeavor to atone.  8
  There is a mental fatigue which is a spurious kind of remorse, and has all the anguish of the nobler feeling. It is an utter weariness and prostration of spirit, a sickness of heart and mind, a bitter longing to lie down and die.  9
  Why is it so difficult to love wisely, so easy to love too well?  10
