C.N. Douglas, comp.  Forty Thousand Quotations: Prose and Poetical.  1917.
 
Parke Godwin
 
  The greatest of all human benefits, that at least without which no other benefit can be truly enjoyed, is independence.  1
  The greatest pleasures of which the human mind is susceptible are the pleasures of consciousness and sympathy.  2
  The soul that perpetually overflows with kindness and sympathy will always be cheerful.  3
  The true source of cheerfulness is benevolence. The pursuits of mankind are commonly frigid and contemptible, and the mistake comes, at last, to be detected. But virtue is a charm that never fades. The soul that perpetually overflows with kindness and sympathy will always be cheerful.  4
  There is nothing more allied to the barbarous and savage character than sullenness, concealment, and reserve.  5
