|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.)
|A maid unmaskd may own a well-placed flame;|
Not loving first, but loving wrong, is shame.
Lyttleton.Advice to a Lady, Line 69.
