James Wood, comp.  Dictionary of Quotations.  1899.
 
Mrs. Jameson

  In morals, what begins in fear usually ends in wickedness; in religion, what begins in fear usually ends in fanaticism.  2
  It is impossible completely to understand what we do not love.  3
  Passions existed before principles; they came into the world with us.  4
  Those who dwell in fear dwell next door to hate; and I think it is the cowardice of women that makes them such intense haters.  5
  We can sometimes love what we do not understand, but it is impossible completely to understand what we do not love.  6
  What we truly and earnestly aspire to be, that in some sense we are. The mere aspiration, by changing the frame of the mind, for the moment realises itself.  7
