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

Their heads sometimes so little, that there is no room for wit; sometimes so long, that there is no wit for so much room.

T. Fuller.

After all, the head only reproduces what the heart creates; and so we give the mocking-bird credit when he imitates the loving murmurs of the dove.

G. J. W. Melville.

Some people carry their hearts in their heads; very many carry their heads in their hearts. The difficulty is to keep them apart, yet both actively working together.
