C.N. Douglas, comp.  Forty Thousand Quotations: Prose and Poetical.  1917.
 
Empire
 
        Nations and empires flourish and decay,
By turns command, and in their turns obey.
Ovid.    
  1
        Extended empire, like expanded gold
Exchanges solid strength for feeble splendor.
Johnson.    
  2
        Westward the course of empire takes its way,
  The four first acts already past,
A fifth shall close the drama with the day;
  Time’s noblest offspring is the last.
Bishop Berkeley.    
  3
