Grocott & Ward, comps.  Grocott’s Familiar Quotations, 6th ed.  189-?.
 
Walking
 
Imprudent men heaven’s choicest gifts profane;
Thus some beneath their arm support the cane,
The dirty point oft checks the careless pace,
And miry spots the clean cravat disgrace.
Oh! may I never such misfortune meet!
May no such vicious walkers crowd the street!
        Gay.—Trivia, Book I. Line 75.
