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


I will roar, that it will do any man’s heart good to hear me.
I will aggravate my voice so, that I will roar you as gently as any sucking dove; I will roar you an ’twere any nightingale.
Shakespeare.—Midsummer Night’s Dream, Act I. Scene 2. (Bottom to Quince.)
