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


Prithee, peace.
I dare do all that may become a man;
Who dares do more, is none.
Shakespeare.—Macbeth, Act I. Scene 7. (To his Lady.)

And these she answer’d kindly as she could,
But still “I dare not,” waited on “I would.”
Crabbe.—Tales of the Hall, Vol. II. Book XV.

What man dare, I dare;
Approach thou like the rugged Russian bear,
The arm’d rhinoceros, or the Hircan tiger,
Take any shape but that, and my firm nerves
Shall never tremble.
Shakespeare.—Macbeth, Act III. Scene 4. (To the Ghost of Banquo.)
