John Bartlett (1820–1905).  Familiar Quotations, 10th ed.  1919.
 
 
NUMBER:1512
AUTHOR:William Shakespeare (1564–1616)
QUOTATION:The chariest maid is prodigal enough,
If she unmask her beauty to the moon:
Virtue itself ’scapes not calumnious strokes:
The canker galls the infants of the spring
Too oft before their buttons be disclosed,
And in the morn and liquid dew of youth
Contagious blastments are most imminent.
ATTRIBUTION:Hamlet. Act i. Sc. 3.  [text]
WORKS:William Shakespeare Collection.
