C.N. Douglas, comp.  Forty Thousand Quotations: Prose and Poetical.  1917.
  A usurper always distrusts the whole world.  1
  Deep, sombre vengeance is the daughter of deep silence.  2
  First thoughts are not always the best.  3
  Joy surfeited turns to sorrow.  4
  The heart does not lie.  5
  There is a silence, the child of love, which expresses everything, and proclaims more loudly then the tongue is able to do; there are movements that are involuntary proofs of what the soul feels.  6
  To err is human; but contrition felt for the crime distinguishes the virtuous from the wicked.  7
  Well does Heaven have care that no man secures happiness by crime.  8
