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


If ever I thank any man I’ll thank you;… when a man thanks me heartily, methinks I have given him a penny, and he renders me beggarly thanks.
Shakespeare.—As You Like It, Act II. Scene 6. (Jaques to Amiens.)

When I’m not thank’d at all, I’m thank’d enough.
Fielding.—Tom Thumb, Act I. Scene 3.

Thank you kindly, sir.
Anonymous.—Trick upon Trick, Act I.

Your love deserves my thanks.
Shakespeare.—King Richard III., Act III. Scene 7. (Gloster to Buckingham and the Mayor.)

I can no other answer make but thanks,
And thanks; and ever oft good turns
Are shuffled off with such uncurrent pay.
Shakespeare.—Twelfth Night, Act III. Scene 3. (Sebastian to Antonio.)

No more of thanks—no more!
Middleton.—The Roaring Girl, Act I. Scene 1.
