Grocott & Ward, comps.  Grocott’s Familiar Quotations, 6th ed.  189-?.
 
Scandal
 
There is a lust in man no charm can tame,
Of loudly publishing his neighbour’s shame;—
On eagle’s wings immortal scandals fly,
While virtuous actions are but born and die.

Love and scandal are the best sweeteners of tea.

        You know
That I do fawn on men, and hug them hard,
And after scandal them.
        Shakespeare.—Julius Cæsar, Act I. Scene 2.

Ye prim adepts in scandal’s school,
Who rail by precept, and detract by rule.
        Sheridan.—The School for Scandal; a Portrait addressed to Mrs. Crewe, with the play.

Flavia, most tender of her own good name,
Is rather careless of a sister’s fame:
Her superfluity the poor supplies,
But if she touch a character it dies.

  6
All scandal, take my word for it!
        Murphy.—The Way to Keep Him, Act II.
