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


Lawless are they that make their wills their law.


Self-will is so ardent and active that it will break a world to pieces to make a stool to sit on.


Be not under the dominion of thine own will; it is the vice of the ignorant, who vainly presume on their own understanding.


Weakness has many stages. There is a difference between feebleness by the impotency of the will, of the will to the resolution, of the resolution to the choice of means, of the choice of the means to the application.

Cardinal de Retz.
