Scorn
 
  Scorn at first, makes after-love the more.
Shakespeare.    
  1
  Disdain and scorn ride sparkling in her eyes.
Shakespeare.    
  2
  A dismal, universal hiss, the sound of public scorn.
Milton.    
  3
        I had rather be a dog, and bay the moon,
Than such a Roman.
Shakespeare.    
  4
        So let him stand, through ages yet unborn,
Fix’d statue on the pedestal of scorn!
Byron.    
  5
        Infamous wretch! so much below my scorn,
I dare not kill thee.
Dryden.    
  6
                    Alas! to make me
The fixed figure of the time, for scorn
To point his slow and moving finger at.
Shakespeare.    
  7
  Thou mayst from law, but not from scorn escape. The pointed finger, cold, averted eye, insulted virtue’s hiss, thou canst not fly.
Charles Sprague.
