C.N. Douglas, comp.  Forty Thousand Quotations: Prose and Poetical.  1917.
 
Distance
 
  Distance sometimes endears friendship and absence sweeteneth it.
Howell.    
  1
        ’Tis distance lends enchantment to the view,
And robes the mountain in its azure hue.
Campbell.    
  2
        Wishes, like painted landscapes, best delight
Whilst distance recommends them to the sight;
Plac’d afar off, they beautiful appear:
But show their coarse and nauseous colors near.
Dr. Yalden.    
  3
  She pleased while distant, but when near she charm’d.
Shenstone.
