Famous quotes containing the words scandal and/or bounty:

    Certain it is that scandal is good brisk talk, whereas praise of one’s neighbour is by no means lively hearing. An acquaintance grilled, scored, devilled, and served with mustard and cayenne pepper excites the appetite; whereas a slice of cold friend with currant jelly is but a sickly, unrelishing meat.
    William Makepeace Thackeray (1811–1863)

    My bounty is as boundless as the sea,
    My love as deep. The more I give to thee
    The more I have, for both are infinite.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)
