C.N. Douglas, comp.  Forty Thousand Quotations: Prose and Poetical.  1917.
 
Whewell
 
  Conscience is the reason employed about questions of right and wrong.  1
  Every failure is a step to success; every detection of what is false directs us toward what is true; every trial exhausts some tempting form of error. Not only so, but scarcely any attempt is entirely a failure; scarcely any theory, the result of steady thought, is altogether false; no tempting form of error is without some latent charm derived from truth.  2
  Every man has obligations which belong to his station. Duties extend beyond obligation, and direct the affections, desires and intentions as well as the actions.  3
  Prudence supposes the value of the end to be assumed, and refers only to the adaptation of the means. It is the relation of right means for given ends.  4
  Those who have obtained the farthest insight into Nature have been, in all ages, firm believers in God.  5
