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


The only art her guilt to cover,
To hide her shame from ev’ry eye;
To give repentance to her lover,
And wring his bosom—is to die.
Goldsmith.—The Vicar of Wakefield. (Olivia’s Song.)

Guilt’s a terrible thing.
Ben Jonson.—Bartholomew Fair, Act IV. Scene 1.
