John Bartlett (1820–1905).  Familiar Quotations, 10th ed.  1919.
 
 
NUMBER:279
AUTHOR:John Lyly (1554?–1606)
QUOTATION:Cupid and my Campaspe play’d
At cards for kisses: Cupid paid.
He stakes his quiver, bow, and arrows,
His mother’s doves, and team of sparrows:
Loses them too. Then down he throws
The coral of his lip, the rose
Growing on ’s cheek (but none knows how);
With these, the crystal of his brow,
And then the dimple on his chin:
All these did my Campaspe win.
At last he set her both his eyes:
She won, and Cupid blind did rise.
  O Love! has she done this to thee?
  What shall, alas! become of me?
ATTRIBUTION:Cupid and Campaspe. Act iii. Sc. 5.
