C.N. Douglas, comp.  Forty Thousand Quotations: Prose and Poetical.  1917.
 
Crown
 
  Uneasy lies the head that wears a crown.
Shakespeare.    
  1
        Within the hollow crown
That rounds the mortal temples of a king,
Keeps death his court; and there the antick sits,
Scoffing his state, and grinning at his pomp.
Shakespeare.    
  2
                                A crown
Golden in show, is but a wreath of thorns;
Brings dangers, troubles, cares, and sleepless nights
To him who wears the regal diadem,
When on his shoulders each man’s burden lies;
For therein stands the office of a king,
His honor, virtue, merit, and chief praise,
That for the public all this weight he bears.
Milton.
