Grocott & Ward, comps.  Grocott’s Familiar Quotations, 6th ed.  189-?.
 
Name
 
Good name in man and woman, dear my lord,
Is the immediate jewel of their souls;
Who steals my purse steals trash; ’tis something, nothing;
’Twas mine, ’tis his, and has been slave to thousands;
But he that filches from me my good name,
Robs me of that which not enriches him,
And makes me poor indeed.
        Shakespeare.—Othello, Act III. Scene 3.
  1
My name is Norval; on the Grampian hills
My father feeds his flocks; a frugal swain,
Whose constant cares were to increase his store,
And keep his only son, myself, at home.
For I had heard of battles, and I long’d
To follow to the field some warlike lord;
And Heav’n soon granted what my sire denied.
        Home.—Douglas, Act II. Scene 1.
  2
  Auf.—What is thy name?
  Cor.—A name unmusical to Volscian’s ears,
And harsh in sound to thine.
        Shakespeare.—Coriolanus, Act IV. Scene 5.
  3
A Junius Brutus, a Pomponius, or a Julius, or any other rusty name unwashed by baptism.
        Disraeli.—On Ridiculous Titles. (Curiosities of Lit. Vol. 2, p. 485.)
  4
One crowded hour of glorious life
Is worth an age without a name.
        Anonymous.—Quoted by Sir Walter Scott in Old Mortality, Chap. XXXIII.
