C.N. Douglas, comp. Forty Thousand Quotations: Prose and Poetical. 1917.


Up start as many aches in his bones, as there are ouches in his skin.

George Chapman.

  • Can by their pangs and aches find
  • All turns and changes of the wind.
  • Butler.

  • If thou neglect’st, or dost unwillingly
  • What I command, I’ll rack thee with old cramps;
  • Fill all thy bones with aches; make thee roar
  • That beasts shall tremble at thy din.
  • Shakespeare.
