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


Cast thy bread upon the waters; for thou shalt find it after many days.
Ecclesiastes, Chap. xi. Ver. 1.

Thou shalt by trial know what bitter fare
Is others’ bread;—how hard the path to go
Upward and downward by another’s stair.
Dante.—Paradiso, Canto XVII. Line 58. (Wright.)
