Grocott & Ward, comps. Grocott’s Familiar Quotations, 6th ed. 189-?.


My bounty is as boundless as the sea,
My love as deep, the more I give to thee
The more I have, for both are infinite.
Shakespeare.—Romeo and Juliet, Act II. Scene 2. (Juliet to Romeo.)

Our bounty, like a drop of water, disappears, when diffus’d too widely.
Goldsmith.—The Good-natured Man, Act III.
