C.N. Douglas, comp.  Forty Thousand Quotations: Prose and Poetical.  1917.
 
Dentistry (Toothache)
 
  One said a tooth-drawer was a kind of unconscionable trade, because his trade was nothing else but to take away those things whereby every man gets his living.
Hazlitt.    
  1
        For there was never yet philosopher
That could endure the toothache patiently.
Shakespeare.    
  2
        Those cherries fairly do enclose
  Of orient pearl a double row,
Which, when her lovely laughter shows,
  They look like rosebuds fill’d with snow.
Howe.    
  3
        My curse upon thy venom’d stang,
That shoots my tortured gums alang;
And through my lugs gies monie a twang,
  Wi’ gnawing vengeance,
Tearing my nerves wi’ bitter pang,
  Like racking engines!
Burns.    
  4
