James Wood, comp.  Dictionary of Quotations.  1899.
  Death comes equally to us all, and makes us all equal when it comes.  1
  For good and evil must in our actions meet; / Wicked is not much worse than indiscreet.  2
  Friends are ourselves.  3
  He was the Word that spake it; / He took the bread and brake it; / And what that Word did make it, / I do believe and take it.  4
  More than kisses letters mingle souls.  5
  True virtue’s soul’s always in all deeds all.  6
  Who is sure he hath a soul, unless / It see and judge, and follow worthiness, / And by deeds praise it? He who doth not this / May lodge an inmate soul, but ’tis not his.  7
