C.N. Douglas, comp.  Forty Thousand Quotations: Prose and Poetical.  1917.
 
Inn
 
  There is nothing which has yet been contrived by man, by which so much happiness is produced as by a good tavern or inn.
Johnson.    
  1
        Now spurs the lated traveler apace
To gain the timely inn.
Shakespeare.    
  2
        Whoe’er has travel’d life’s dull round,
  Where’er his stages may have been,
May sigh to think he still has found
  The warmest welcome, at an inn.
Shenstone.    
  3
        Near yonder thorn, that lifts its head on high,
Where once the sign-post caught the passing eye,
Low lies that house where nut-brown draughts inspired,
Where graybeard mirth and smiling toil retired,
Where village statesmen talk’d with looks profound,
And news much older than their ale went round.
Goldsmith.
