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


If rich, it is easy enough to conceal your wealth; but if poor, it is not quite so easy to conceal your poverty. We shall find that it is less difficult to hide a thousand guineas than one hole in our coat.


To conceal anything from those to whom I am attached, is not in my nature. I can never close my lips where I have opened my heart.
