Grocott & Ward, comps.  Grocott’s Familiar Quotations, 6th ed.  189-?.
 
Infancy
 
At first the infant,
Mewling and puking in his nurse’s arms.
        Shakespeare.—As You Like It, Act II. Scene 7. (Jaques.)
  1
Infancy straining backward from the breast,
Tetchy and wayward, what he loveth best
Refusing in his fits, whilst all the while
The mother eyes the wrangler with a smile.
        Churchill.—Gotham, Book I.
