C.N. Douglas, comp.  Forty Thousand Quotations: Prose and Poetical.  1917.
 
Master
 
  If thou art a master, be sometimes blind; if a servant, sometimes deaf.
Fuller.    
  1
  There is nothing so good to make a horse fat, as the eye of his master.
Diogenes.    
  2
  The many still must labor for the one! It is nature’s doom.
Byron.    
  3
  It is a common law of nature, which no time will ever change, that superiors shall rule their inferiors.
Dionysius.    
  4
  The measure of a master is his success in bringing all men round to his opinion twenty years later.
Emerson.    
  5
  I follow him to serve my turn upon him; we cannot all be masters, nor all masters cannot be truly followed.
Shakespeare.    
  6
  We must truly serve those whom we appear to command; we must bear with their imperfections, correct them with gentleness and patience, and lead them in the way to heaven.
Fénelon.    
  7
  It is not only paying wages, and giving commands, that constitutes a master of a family, but prudence, equal behavior, with a readiness to protect and cherish them, is what entitles a man to that character in their very hearts and sentiments.
Steele.    
  8
  It is proper for every one to consider, in the case of all men, that he who has not been a servant cannot become a praiseworthy master; and it is meet that we should plume ourselves rather on acting the part of a servant properly than that of the master, first, towards the laws, (for in this way we are servants of the gods), and next, towards our elders.
Plato.    
  9
