De Foe
 
        Wherever God erects a house of prayer,
The Devil always builds a chapel there:
And ’twill be found upon examination,
The latter has the largest congregation.
  1
  All the good things of this world are no further good to us than as they are of use; and whatever we may heap up to give to others, we enjoy only as much as we can use, and no more.  2
  And lords whose parents were the Lord knows who!  3
  Blood follows blood.  4
  Friends are good,—good, if well chosen.  5
  It is better to have a lion at the head of an army of sheep, than a sheep at the head of an army of lions.  6
  Pride, the first peer and president of hell.  7
  We are very fond of some families because they can be traced beyond the Conquest, whereas indeed the farther back, the worse, as being the nearer allied to a race of robbers and thieves.  8
  When flatterers meet the devil goes to dinner.  9
