C.N. Douglas, comp. Forty Thousand Quotations: Prose and Poetical. 1917.


  • We will renew the times of peace and justice,
  • Condensing in a fair free commonwealth;
  • Not rash equality, but equal rights,
  • Proportion’d like the columns of the temple
  • Giving and taking strength reciprocal,
  • And making firm the whole with grace and beauty;
  • So that no part could be removed without
  • Infringement of the general symmetry.
  • Byron.
