C.N. Douglas, comp.  Forty Thousand Quotations: Prose and Poetical.  1917.
 
Henry Taylor
 
  Fear is the mother of foresight.  1
  He who gives what he would as readily throw away gives without generosity; for the essence of generosity is in self-sacrifice.  2
  Of all the uses of adversity which are sweet, none are sweeter than those which grow out of disappointed love.  3
  Prodigality is indeed the vice of a weak nature, as avarice is of a strong one; it comes of a weak craving for those blandishments of the world which are easily to be had for money.  4
  The philosophy which affects to teach us a contempt of money does not run very deep.  5
  The world knows nothing of its greatest men.  6
  When you give, take to yourself no credit for generosity, unless you deny yourself something in order that you may give.  7
  Wisdom is corrupted by ambition, even when the quality of the ambition is intellectual. For ambition, even of this quality, is but a form of self-love.  8
