C.N. Douglas, comp.  Forty Thousand Quotations: Prose and Poetical.  1917.
 
Prison
 
  The living grave of crime.
Joaquin Miller.    
  1
  Young Crime’s finishing-school.
Mrs. Balfour.    
  2
                    A felon’s cell—
The fittest earthly type of hell!
Whittier.    
  3
  Shut up in the prison of their own consciences.
Archbishop Usher.    
  4
  To trial bring her stolen charms, and let her prison be my arms.
Earl of Egremont.    
  5
  The worst prison is not of stone. It is of a throbbing heart, outraged by an infamous life.
Beecher.    
  6
        Stone walls do not a prison make,
  Nor iron bars a cage;
Minds innocent and quiet take
  That for an hermitage.
Lovelace.    
  7
        A prison! heav’ns, I loath the hated name,
Famine’s metropolis, the sink of shame,
A nauseous sepulchre, whose craving womb
Hourly inters poor mortals in its tomb;
By ev’ry plague and ev’ry ill possess’d,
Ev’n purgatory itself to thee ’s a jest.
Tom Brown.
