John Bartlett (1820–1905).  Familiar Quotations, 10th ed.  1919.
 
 
NUMBER:1457
AUTHOR:William Shakespeare (1564–1616)
QUOTATION:My way of life
Is fall’n into the sere, the yellow leaf;
And that which should accompany old age,
As honour, love, obedience, troops of friends,
I must not look to have; but in their stead
Curses, not loud but deep, mouth-honour, breath,
Which the poor heart would fain deny, and dare not.
ATTRIBUTION:Macbeth. Act v. Sc. 3.  [text]
WORKS:William Shakespeare Collection.
