Grocott & Ward, comps.  Grocott’s Familiar Quotations, 6th ed.  189-?.
 
Simplicity
 
Give me a looke give me a face,
That makes simplicitie a grace;
Robes loosely flowing, haire as free:
Such sweet neglect more taketh me,
Than all th’ adulteries of art,
That strike mine eyes, but not my heart.
        Ben Jonson.—Song in the “Silent Woman,” Act I. Scene 1. 3 Percy Rel. 222.
