C.N. Douglas, comp.  Forty Thousand Quotations: Prose and Poetical.  1917.
 
Allegory
 
  Allegory dwells in a transparent palace.
Le Mierre.    
  1
  A man conversing in earnest, if he watch his intellectual processes, will find that a material image, more or less luminous, arises in his mind, contemporaneous with every thought, which furnishes the vestment of the thought. Hence, good writing and brilliant discourse are perpetual allegories.
Emerson.    
  2
  Allegories, when well chosen, are like so many tracks of light in a discourse, that make everything about them clear and beautiful.
Addison.
