DIAMONDS
[ Also see Jewels ]

She who from April dates her years,
  Diamonds should wear, lest bitter tears
    For vain repentance flow; this stone,
      Emblem of innocence is known.
      - Unattributed Author, April,
        in "Notes and Queries", May 11, 1889, p. 371

The rarest things in the world, next to a spirit of discernment, are diamonds and pearls.
  [Fr., Apres l'esprit de discernement, ce qu'il y a au monde de plus rare, ce sont les diamants et les perles.]
      - Jean de la Bruyere, Les Caracteres (XII)

The lively Diamond drinks thy purest rays,
  Collected light, compact.
      - James Thomson (1), Seasons--Summer
         (l. 142)
