C.N. Douglas, comp.  Forty Thousand Quotations: Prose and Poetical.  1917.
 
Lion
 
  A lion among ladies is a most dreadful thing: for there is not a more fearful wild-fowl than your lion living.
Shakespeare.    
  1
        Poor conquer’d lion—from that haughty glance
  Still speaks the courage unsubdued by time,
And in the grandeur of thy sullen tread
  Lives the proud spirit of thy burning clime.
O. W. Holmes.    
  2
        The lion is beyond dispute
Allow’d the most majestic brute;
His valor and his generous mind
Prove him superior of his kind.
Gay.    
  3
        A lioness with udders all drawn dry,
Lay couching, head on ground, with catlike watch,
When that the sleeping man should stir; for ’tis
The royal disposition of that beast
To prey on nothing that doth seem as dead.
Shakespeare.
