C.N. Douglas, comp.  Forty Thousand Quotations: Prose and Poetical.  1917.
 
Tale
 
  An honest tale speeds best, being plainly told.
Shakespeare.    
  1
        This act is an ancient tale new told;
And, in the last repeating, troublesome,
Being urged at a time unseasonable.
Shakespeare.    
  2
        Who gather round, and wonder at the tale
Of horrid apparition, tall and ghastly,
That walks at dead of night, or takes his stand
O’er some new-open’d grave, and, strange to tell,
Evanishes at crowing of the cock.
Blair.
