Random Quote #93 topic: handy-poetical, Handy Dictionary of Poetical Quotations


Slanderous reproaches, and foul infamies,
Leasings, backbitings, and vainglorious crakes,
Bad counsels, praises, and false flatteries;
All those against that fort did bend their batteries.

SPENSER: _Faerie Queene,_ Bk. ii., Canto xi., St. 10.

'T is slander,
Whose edge is sharper than the sword: whose tongue
Outvenoms all the worms of Nile; whose breath
Bides on the posting winds, and doth belie
All corners of the world,--kings, queens, and states,
Maids, matrons,--nay, the secrets of the grave
This viperous slander enters.

SHAKS.: _Cymbeline,_ Act iii., Sc. 4.

'T was slander filled her mouth with lying words,--
Slander, the foulest whelp of sin.

POLLOK: _Course of Time,_ Bk. viii., Line 715.
