Grocott & Ward, comps.  Grocott’s Familiar Quotations, 6th ed.  189-?.
 
Ventured
 
        I have ventured,
Like little wanton boys that swim on bladders,
This many summers in a sea of glory,
But far beyond my depth: my high-blown pride
At length broke under me, and now has left me,
Weary and old with service, to the mercy
Of a rude stream, that must for ever hide me.
        Shakespeare.—King Henry VIII., Act III. Scene 2. (Wolsey’s Farewell to all his greatness.)
