C.N. Douglas, comp.  Forty Thousand Quotations: Prose and Poetical.  1917.
 
Pliny the Elder
 
  Chance is a second master.  1
  His last day places man in the same state as he was before he was born; nor after death has the body or soul any more feeling than they had before birth.  2
  Human nature is fond of novelty.  3
  I think it is the most beautiful and humane thing in the world, so to mingle gravity with pleasure that the one may not sink into melancholy, nor the other rise up into wantonness.  4
  Nature has given man no better thing than shortness of life.  5
  Nature makes us buy her presents at the price of so many sufferings that it is doubtful whether she deserves most the name of parent or stepmother.  6
  No one is wise at all times.  7
  The brain is the citadel of the senses: this guides the principle of thought.  8
