Grocott & Ward, comps. Grocott’s Familiar Quotations, 6th ed. 189-?.


Virtue alone is sweet society,
It keeps the key to all heroic hearts,
And opens you a welcome in them all.
Emerson.—Poems: Written at Rome, 1833.

Virtue should move easily and gracefully only as it is strong, but it should become strong, that it may move easily and gracefully, and thus become to all men as beautiful as it is obligatory.
Mark Hopkins.—The Connection between Taste and Morals, Lecture II.
