Colley Cibber

Hence, babbling dreams; you threaten here in vain; / Conscience, avaunt, Richard’s himself again.

The happy have whole days, and those they choose; / The unhappy have but hours, and those they lose.

Old houses mended / Cost little less than new before they’re ended.

Richard’s himself again!

We shall find no fiend in hell can match the fury of a disappointed woman,—scorned, slighted, dismissed without a parting pang.
