Grocott & Ward, comps.  Grocott’s Familiar Quotations, 6th ed.  189-?.
 
Pain
 
        Pain was mix’d
In all which was served up to him, until,
Like to the Pontic monarch of old days,
He fed on poisons.
        Byron.—The Dream, Stanza 8.
  1
        ’Tis our weakness:
Blind to events, we reason in the dark,
And fondly apprehend, what none e’er found
Or ever shall, pleasure and pain unmix’d.
        Lillo.—Fatal Curiosity, Act II. Scene 3.
