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


Give me a looke give me a face,
That makes simplicitie a grace;
Robes loosely flowing, haire as free:
Such sweet neglect more taketh me,
Than all th’ adulteries of art,
That strike mine eyes, but not my heart.
Ben Jonson.—Song in the “Silent Woman,” Act I. Scene 1. 3 Percy Rel. 222.
