Hoyt & Roberts, comps.  Hoyt’s New Cyclopedia of Practical Quotations.  1922.
O’er folded blooms
  On swirls of musk,
The beetle booms adown the glooms
  And bumps along the dusk.
        James Whitcomb Riley—The Beetle.
And often, to our comfort, shall we find
The sharded beetle in a safer hold
Than is the full-winged eagle.
        Cymbeline. Act III. Sc. 3. L. 19.
And the poor beetle that we tread upon,
In corporal sufferance finds a pang as great
As when a giant dies.
        Measure for Measure. Act III. Sc. 1. L. 79.
