C.N. Douglas, comp.  Forty Thousand Quotations: Prose and Poetical.  1917.
 
Sprat
 
  All false practices and affections of knowledge are more odious to God, and deserve to be so to men, than any want or defect of knowledge can be.  1
  Covetousness, by a greediness of getting more, deprives itself of the true end of getting; it loses the enjoyment of what it has got.  2
  It is always esteemed the greatest mischief a man can do to those whom he loves, to raise men’s expectations of them too high by undue and impertinent commendations.  3
  Passion is the great mover and spring of the soul. When men’s passions are strongest, they may have great and noble effects; but they are then also apt to fall into the greatest miscarriages.  4
  Whatever you dislike in another person, take care to correct in yourself by the gentle reproof.  5
