C.N. Douglas, comp.  Forty Thousand Quotations: Prose and Poetical.  1917.
Théophile Gautier
        Eyes so transparent,
That through them one sees the soul.
  Brevity never fatigues; therefore, brevity is always a welcome guest.  2
  It is gentle manners which prove so irresistible in women.  3
  White men should exhibit the same insensibility to moral tortures that red men do to physical torments.  4
  With all women gentleness is the most persuasive and powerful argument.  5
