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


When late I attempted your pity to move,
Why seem’d you so deaf to my prayers?
Perhaps it was right to dissemble your love,
But—why did you kick me down stairs?
Anonymous.—From a Comedy in Three Acts called “The Panel,” Scene 4; Notes and Queries, 391.
