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


And call old valour from the grave.
Bloomfield.—Banks of the Wye, Book II.

In vain doth valour bleed,
While avarice and rapine share the land.
Milton.—Sonnet XV., last Lines.

He whose valour scorns his sense,
Has chang’d it into impudence.
Many may to man his valour show,
And ’tis his virtue to do so;
But who’s of his Maker not afraid,
Is not courageous then, but mad.
Defoe.—The Storm.
