Grocott & Ward, comps.  Grocott’s Familiar Quotations, 6th ed.  189-?.
 
Order
 
Order is heaven’s first law; and this confest,
Some are, and must be, greater than the rest,
More rich, more wise; but who infers from hence
That such are happier, shocks all common sense.
        Pope.—Essay on Man, Epi. IV. Line 49.
  1
Take but degree away, untune that string,
And, hark, what discord follows!
        Shakespeare.—Troilus and Cressida, Act I. Scene 3.
  2
The heavens themselves, the planets, and this centre,
Observe degree, priority, and place,
Insisture, course, proportion, season, form,
Office, and custom, in all line of order.
        Shakespeare.—Troilus and Cressida, Act I. Scene 3.
