John Bartlett (1820–1905).  Familiar Quotations, 10th ed.  1919.
 
 
NUMBER:661
AUTHOR:William Shakespeare (1564–1616)
QUOTATION:All things that are,
Are with more spirit chased than enjoy’d.
How like a younker or a prodigal
The scarfed bark puts from her native bay,
Hugg’d and embraced by the strumpet wind!
How like the prodigal doth she return,
With over-weather’d ribs and ragged sails,
Lean, rent, and beggar’d by the strumpet wind!
ATTRIBUTION:The Merchant of Venice. Act ii. Sc. 6.  [text]
WORKS:William Shakespeare Collection.
