John Bartlett (1820–1905).  Familiar Quotations, 10th ed.  1919.
 
 
NUMBER:2404
AUTHOR:Samuel Butler (1612–1680)
QUOTATION:But Hudibras gave him a twitch
As quick as lightning in the breech,
Just in the place where honour ’s lodg’d,
As wise philosophers have judg’d;
Because a kick in that part more
Hurts honour than deep wounds before.
ATTRIBUTION:Hudibras. Part ii. Canto iii. Line 1065.
