Grocott & Ward, comps.  Grocott’s Familiar Quotations, 6th ed.  189-?.
 
Past
 
Past corporal toil.
        Shakespeare.—King Henry V., Act I. Scene 1.
  1
If o’er their lives a refluent glance they cast,
Theirs is the present who can praise the past;
Life has its bliss for these when past its bloom,
As wither’d roses yield a late perfume.
        Shenstone.—The Judgment of Hercules, Line 424.
