Grocott & Ward, comps.  Grocott’s Familiar Quotations, 6th ed.  189-?.
 
Authority
 
        Man, proud man!
Dress’d in a little brief authority:
Most ignorant of what he’s most assur’d.
His glassy essence—like an angry ape
Plays such fantastic tricks before high heaven,
As make the angels weep.
        Shakespeare.—Measure for Measure, Act II. Scene 2. (Isabella to Angelo.)
