Grocott & Ward, comps.  Grocott’s Familiar Quotations, 6th ed.  189-?.
 
Now
 
Now is the winter of our discontent
Made glorious summer by this sun of York;
And all the clouds that lower’d upon our house
In the deep bosom of the ocean buried.
        Shakespeare.—Richard III., Act I. Scene 1. (Gloster on his own deformities.)
  1
All thoughts of her are in your goodness buried.
        Massinger.—Duke of Florence, Act V. Scene 3.
  2
Now stir the fire, and close the shutters fast,
Let fall the curtains, wheel the sofa round,
And while the bubbling and loud-hissing urn
Throws up a steamy column, and the cups,
That cheer but not inebriate, wait on each,
So let us welcome peaceful evening in.
        Cowper.—The Task, Book IV. Line 36.
  3
Now up, now down, as bucket in a well.
        Chaucer.—Vol. I., The Knight’s Tale, Line 1535.
  4
Behold, now is the accepted time, now is the day of salvation.
        St. Paul, 2nd Corinthians, Chap. vi. Ver. 2.
