Grocott & Ward, comps.  Grocott’s Familiar Quotations, 6th ed.  189-?.
 
Temper
 
Oh! blest with temper, whose unclouded ray
Can make to-morrow cheerful as to-day;
She, who can own a sister’s charms, and hear
Sighs for a daughter with unwounded ear;
She who ne’er answers till a husband cools,
And if she rules him, never shows she rules.
        Pope.—Moral Essays, Epi. II. To a Lady, Line 257.
  1
And mistress of herself though china fall.
        Pope.—Moral Essays, Epi. II. To a Lady, Line 268.
  2
In vain he seeketh others to suppress,
Who hath not learn’d himself first to subdue.
        Spenser.—Fairy Queen, Book VI. Canto I. Ver. 41.
  3
I’ll make them live as brothers should with brother,
And keep them in good-humour with each other.
        Churchill.—Night, Line 67.
  4
A sunny temper gilds the edges of life’s blackest cloud.
        Guthrie.—The Gospel in Ezekiel, Ch. iv. p. 67.
