Grocott & Ward, comps.  Grocott’s Familiar Quotations, 6th ed.  189-?.
 
Arrows
 
When bows were bent, and darts were thrawn,
  For thrang scarce could they flee;
The darts clove arrows as they met,
  The arrows dart the tree.
        Sir John Bruce.—Hardyknute, 2 Percy Reliques, 109.
  1
In my school-days, when I had lost one shaft,
I shot his fellow of the self-same flight,
The self-same way, with more advised watch
To find the other; and, by adventuring both,
I oft found both.
        Shakespeare.—Merchant of Venice, Act I. Scene 1. (Bassanio to Antonio.)
  2
ART.—To me more dear, congenial to my heart,
One native charm, than all the gloss of art.
        Goldsmith.—Deserted Village, Line 253.
  3
And, even while Fashion’s brightest arts decoy,
The heart distrusting asks, if this be joy?
        Goldsmith.—Deserted Village, Line 263.
  4
Art is long and time is fleeting,
  And our hearts though stout and brave,
Still, like muffled drums are beating
  Funeral marches to the grave.
        Longfellow.—Psalm of Life, Verse 4.
