Grocott & Ward, comps.  Grocott’s Familiar Quotations, 6th ed.  189-?.
 
Paddling
 
Paddling in your neck with his damn’d fingers.
        Shakespeare.—Hamlet, Act III. Scene 4.
  1
Didst thou see her paddle with the palm
Of his hand? did’st not mark that?
        Shakespeare.—Othello, Act II. Scene 1.
  2
But to be paddling palms, and pinching fingers,
As now they are; and making practis’d smiles,
As in a looking-glass; and then to sigh——
O, that is entertainment
My bosom likes not, nor my brows!
        Shakespeare.—Winter’s Tale, Act I. Scene 2.
