C.N. Douglas, comp.  Forty Thousand Quotations: Prose and Poetical.  1917.
Arsène Houssaye
  Genius has its fatality. Must we not see in its works a manifestation of the will of Providence?  1
  Happiness is always the inaccessible castle which sinks in ruin when we set foot on it.  2
  Hope is the virgin of the ideal world, who opens heaven to us in the midst of every tempest.  3
  Imagination, whatever may be said to the contrary, will always hold a place in history, as truth does in romance. Has not romance been penned with history in view?  4
  The graves of those we have loved and lost distress and console us.  5
  The heart is always young only in the recollection of those whom it has loved in youth.  6
  There are two persons in the world we never see as they are,—one’s self and one’s other self.  7
  Up to forty a woman has only forty springs in her heart. After that age she has only forty winters.  8
  We must always have old memories and young hopes.  9
  Women of forty always fancy they have found the Fountain of Youth, and that they remain young in the midst of the ruins of their day.  10
