Grocott & Ward, comps.  Grocott’s Familiar Quotations, 6th ed.  189-?.
 
Fought
 
Sooth’d with the sound, the king grew vain,
  Fought all his battles o’er again;
And thrice he routed all his foes,
  And thrice he slew the slain.
        Dryden.—Alexander’s Feast, Verse 4.
  1
The broken soldier, kindly bid to stay,
Sat by his fire, and talk’d the night away;
Wept o’er his wounds, or tales of sorrow done,
Shoulder’d his crutch, and show’d how fields were won.
        Goldsmith.—The Deserted Village, Line 155.
