John Bartlett (1820–1905).  Familiar Quotations, 10th ed.  1919.
 
 
NUMBER:2791
AUTHOR:John Milton (1608–1674)
QUOTATION:What needs my Shakespeare for his honour’d bones,—
The labour of an age in piled stones?
Or that his hallow’d relics should be hid
Under a star-y-pointing pyramid?
Dear son of memory, great heir of fame,
What need’st thou such weak witness of thy name?
ATTRIBUTION:Epitaph on Shakespeare.
