Grocott & Ward, comps.  Grocott’s Familiar Quotations, 6th ed.  189-?.
 
Blush
 
        I will go wash;
And when my face is fair, you shall perceive
Whether I blush or no.
        Shakespeare.—Coriolanus, Act I. Scene 9. (To his Generals.)
  1
The rising blushes, which her cheek o’erspread,
Are opening roses in the lily’s bed.
        Gay.—Dione, Act II. Scene 3.
  2
The man that blushes, is not quite a brute.
        Dr. Young.—Night VII. Line 496.
  3
Proceed, my son! this youthful shame expel;
An honest business never blush to tell.
        Pope.—The Odyssey, Book III. Line 19.
  4
In morals blameless, as in manners meek,
He knew no wish that he might blush to speak.
        Cowper.—To the Memory of Dr. Lloyd, Line 11.
  5
The blood within her crystal cheekes
  Did such a colour drive,
As though the lillye and the rose
  For mastership did strive.
        Anonymous.—Fair Rosamond, 2 Percy Rel. 156.
  6
If blush thou must, then blush thou through
  A lawn; that thou may’st look
As purest pearls, or pebbles do,
  When peeping through a brook.
        Herrick.—The Hesperides; to Julia, No. 70, Amatory Odes.
