C.N. Douglas, comp.  Forty Thousand Quotations: Prose and Poetical.  1917.
  Be cautious and bold.  1
  Faithfully guard your reputation.  2
  It requires a great deal of boldness and a great deal of caution to make a great fortune; and when you have got it, it requires ten times as much wit to keep it.  3
  Make few acquaintances.  4
  Never have anything to do with an unlucky place, or an unlucky man. I have seen many clever men, very clever men, who had not shoes to their feet. I never act with them. Their advice sounds very well, but they cannot get on themselves; and if they cannot do good to themselves, how can they do good to me?  5
  Sacrifice money rather than principle.  6
