S. Austin Allibone, comp.  Prose Quotations from Socrates to Macaulay.  1880.
  Reserve is no more essentially connected with understanding than a church organ with devotion, or wine with good-nature.
William Shenstone.    
  A reserved man is in continual conflict with the social part of his nature, and even grudges himself the laugh into which he is sometimes betrayed.
William Shenstone.    
  It can be no duty to write his heart upon his forehead, and to give all the inquisitive and malicious world a survey of those thoughts which is the prerogative of God only to know.
Robert South.
