James Wood, comp.  Dictionary of Quotations.  1899.
  Books cannot always please, however good; / Minds are not ever craving for their food.  1
  Circles in water as they wider flow, / The less conspicuous in their progress grow, / And when at last they trench upon the shore, / Distinction ceases, and they’re view’d no more.  2
  Learning is better worth than house or land.  3
  Man yields to custom as he bows to fate, / In all things ruled—mind, body, and estate: / In pain, in sickness, we for cure apply / To them we know not, and we know not why.  4
  Monuments themselves memorials need.  5
  To sigh, yet not recede; to grieve, yet not repent.  6
