NUMBER:3199
AUTHOR:Colley Cibber (1671–1757)
QUOTATION:I ’ve lately had two spiders
Crawling upon my startled hopes.
Now though thy friendly hand has brush’d ’em from me,
Yet still they crawl offensive to my eyes:
I would have some kind friend to tread upon ’em.
ATTRIBUTION:Richard III. (altered). Act iv. Sc. 3.
