Book of Wise Sayings by W. A. Clouston is an interesting peek into Eastern philosophy and thought. It is a collection of quotes and sayings to help with the trials and tribulations of everyday life. Excerpt: "The enemies which rise within the body, hard to overcome should manfully be fought: he who conquers these is equal to the conquerors of worlds. If passion gaineth the mastery over reason, the wise will not count thee amongst men. Dost thou desire that thine own heart should not suffer, redeem thou the sufferer from the bonds of misery."
