John Bartlett (1820–1905).  Familiar Quotations, 10th ed.  1919.
 
 
NUMBER:4697
AUTHOR:Richard Brinsley Sheridan (1751–1816)
QUOTATION:Here ’s to the maiden of bashful fifteen;
  Here ’s to the widow of fifty;
Here ’s to the flaunting, extravagant quean,
  And here ’s to the housewife that ’s thrifty!
        Let the toast pass;
        Drink to the lass;
I ’ll warrant she ’ll prove an excuse for the glass.
ATTRIBUTION:School for Scandal. Act iii. Sc. 3.
