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


1.What, you’re a scholar, friend?
2.I was born so, measter. Feyther kept a grammar school.
Sheridan.—St. Patrick’s Day, Act II. Scene 1.

He was a scholar, and a ripe and good one;
Exceeding wise, fair spoken, and persuading;
Lofty and sour to them that loved him not;
But, to those men that sought him, sweet as summer.
Shakespeare.—King Henry VIII., Act IV. Scene 2. (Griffith to Queen Katherine respecting Wolsey.)
