Grocott & Ward, comps.  Grocott’s Familiar Quotations, 6th ed.  189-?.
 
Maid
 
The chariest maid is prodigal enough,
If she unmask her beauty to the moon;
Virtue itself ’scapes not calumnious strokes.
        Shakespeare.—Hamlet, Act I. Scene 3. (Laertes to Ophelia.)
  1
A maid unmask’d may own a well-placed flame;
Not loving first, but loving wrong, is shame.
        Lyttleton.—Advice to a Lady, Line 69.
