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


O, what damned minutes tells he o’er,
Who dotes yet doubts; suspects, yet fondly loves!
Shakespeare.—Othello, Act III. Scene 3. (Iago to Othello, warning him against Jealousy.)

Our doubts are traitors,
And make us lose the good we oft might win,
By fearing to attempt.
Shakespeare.—Measure for Measure, Act I. Scene 5. (Lucio to Isabella.)
