Grocott & Ward, comps.  Grocott’s Familiar Quotations, 6th ed.  189-?.
 
Scene
 
Last scene of all,
That ends this strange eventful history,
Is second childishness and mere oblivion;
Sans teeth, sans eyes, sans taste, sans every thing.
        Shakespeare.—As You Like It. Act II. Scene 7. (Jaques on the Seven Ages of Man.)
  1
Some temple’s mouldering tops between,
With venerable grandeur mark the scene.
        Goldsmith.—Traveller, Line 109.
  2
        View each well-known scene,
Think what is now, and what hath been.
        Scott.—Lay of the Last Minstrel, Canto VI. Stanza 2.
  3
Though from truth I haply err,
The scene preserves its character.
        William Combe.—Dr. Syntax, Chap. II.
