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


  • Then did she lift her hands unto his chin,
  • And praise the pretty dimpling of his skin.
  • Beaumont.

  • In each cheek appears a pretty dimple;
  • Love made those hollows; if himself were slain
  • He might be buried in a tomb so simple;
  • Foreknowing well, if there he came to lie,
  • Why, there Love lived, and there he could not die.
  • Shakespeare.
