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


O fear not in a world like this,
And thou shalt know ere long,
Know how sublime a thing it is
To suffer and be strong.
Longfellow.—The Light of Stars.

Sufferance is the badge of all our tribe.
Shakespeare.—Merchant of Venice, Act I. Scene 3. (Shylock to Antonio.)

To each his sufferings: all are men
Condemn’d alike to groan;
The tender for another’s pain,
The unfeeling for his own.
Gray.—Ode on Eton College, Verse 10.
