Grocott & Ward, comps.  Grocott’s Familiar Quotations, 6th ed.  189-?.
 
Dissension
 
But now our fates from unmomentous things
May rise like rivers out of little springs.
        Campbell.—Theodric.
  1
Alas! how light a cause may move
Dissension between hearts that love!
Hearts that the world in vain had tried,
And sorrow but more closely tied;
That stood the storm when waves were rough,
Yet in a sunny hour fall off.
        Tom Moore.—The Light of the Harem, Vol. VII. Page 22.
  2
Great floods have flown from simple sources.
        Shakespeare.—All’s Well that Ends Well, Act II. Scene 1. (Helena to the King.)
  3
Dissensions, like small streams, are first begun;
Scarce seen they rise, but gather as they run.
        Garth.—The Dispensary, Canto III. Line 184.
  4
Civil dissension is a viperous worm
That gnaws the bowels of the commonwealth.
        Shakespeare.—King Henry VI., Part I. Act III. Scene 1. (The King to Gloster and Winchester.)
  5
Could we forbear dispute, and practise love,
We should agree, as angels do above.
        Waller.—Divine Love, Canto III.
