S. Austin Allibone, comp.  Prose Quotations from Socrates to Macaulay.  1880.
  Partiality in a parent is commonly unlucky; for fondlings are in danger to be made fools; and the children that are least cockered make the best and wisest men.
Roger L’Estrange.    
  As there is a partiality to opinions, which is apt to mislead the understanding, so there is also a partiality to studies, which is prejudicial to knowledge.
John Locke.    
  Partiality is properly the understanding’s judging according to the inclination of the will and affections, and not according to the exact truth of things, or the merits of the cause.
Robert South.
