C.N. Douglas, comp.  Forty Thousand Quotations: Prose and Poetical.  1917.
 
John Boyle O’Reilly
 
        But the gods are dead—
Ay, Zeus is dead, and all the gods but Doubt,
And Doubt is brother devil to Despair!
  1
        The world is large when its weary leagues two loving hearts divide;
But the world is small when your enemy is loose on the other side.
  2
        What man would be wise, let him drink of the river
  That bears on his bosom the record of time;
A message to him every wave can deliver
  To teach him to creep till he knows how to climb.
  3
        When honor comes to you be ready to take it;
But reach not to seize it before it is near.
  4
  Be silent and safe—silence never betrays you.  5
  Who heeds not experience, trust him not.  6
