Grocott & Ward, comps.  Grocott’s Familiar Quotations, 6th ed.  189-?.
 
Perjury
 
Shall I lay perjury upon my soul?
No, not for Venice.
        Shakespeare.—Merchant of Venice, Act IV. Scene 1.
  1
        At lover’s perjuries,
They say, Jove laughs.
        Shakespeare.—Romeo and Juliet, Act II. Scene 2.
  2
Sworn on every slight pretence,
Till perjuries are common as bad pence;
While thousands, careless of the damning sin,
Kiss the book’s outside who ne’er look within.
        Cowper.—Expostulation, Line 386.
