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


We are more sociable, and get on better with people by the heart than the intellect.

La Bruyère.

I cannot be certain not to meet with evil company, but I will be careful not to keep with evil company. I would willingly sort myself with such as should either teach or learn goodness; and if my companion cannot make me better, nor I him good, I will rather leave him ill than he shall make me worse.

Arthur Warwick.
