S. Austin Allibone, comp.  Prose Quotations from Socrates to Macaulay.  1880.
 
Dr. Samuel Parr
 
  The crowded, yet clear and luminous, galaxies of imagery diffused through the works of Bishop Taylor.
Dr. Samuel Parr.

  Where education has been entirely neglected, or improperly managed, we see the worst passions ruling with uncontrolled and incessant sway. Good sense degenerates into craft, and anger rankles into malignity. Restraint, which is thought most salutary, comes too late, and the most judicious admonitions are urged in vain.
Dr. Samuel Parr.

  Gratitude is a virtue which, according to the general apprehensions of mankind, approaches more nearly than any other social virtue to justice.
Dr. Samuel Parr.

  Sound policy is never at variance with substantial justice.
Dr. Samuel Parr.

  Lying supplies those who are addicted to it with a plausible apology for every crime, and with a supposed shelter from every punishment. It tempts them to run into danger from the mere expectation of impunity, and when practised with frequent success it teaches them to confound the gradations of guilt, from the effects of which there is, in their imaginations at least, one sure and common protection. It corrupts the early simplicity of youth; it blasts the fairest blossoms of genius; and will most assuredly counteract every effort by which we may hope to improve the talents and mature the virtues of those whom it infects.
Dr. Samuel Parr.

  Youth is eminently the fittest season for establishing habits of industry.
