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


True gladness doth not always speak; joy, bred and born but in the tongue, is weak.

Ben Jonson.

Nations and men are only the best when they are the gladdest, and deserve heaven when they enjoy it.


For from the crushed flowers of gladness on the road of life a sweet perfume is wafted over to the present hour, as marching armies often send out from heaths the fragrance of trampled plants.
