C.N. Douglas, comp.  Forty Thousand Quotations: Prose and Poetical.  1917.
 
Wilkie Collins
 
  How often we feel and know, either pleasurably or painfully, that another is looking on us, before we have ascertained the fact with our own eyes! How often we prophesy truly to ourselves the approach of friend or enemy just before either has really appeared! How strangely and abruptly we become convinced, at a first introduction, that we shall secretly love this person and loathe that, before experience has guided us with a single fact in relation to their characters!  1
  Husbands and wives talk of the cares of matrimony, and bachelors and spinsters bear them.  2
  Pedants, who have the least knowledge to be proud of, are impelled most by vanity.  3
  We neither know nor judge ourselves; others may judge, but cannot know us. God alone judges and knows us.  4
