She Stoops to Conquer

HARDCASTLE: Ay, Kate, but there is still an obstacle. It's more than an even wager he may not have you.

MISS HARDCASTLE: My dear papa, why will you mortify one so?--Well, if he refuses, instead of breaking my heart at his indifference, I'll only break my glass for its flattery, set my cap to some newer fashion, and look out for some less difficult admirer.

Quoted on May 20, 2012

There was a time, indeed, I fretted myself about the mistakes of government, like other people; but finding myself every day grow more angry, and the government growing no better, I left it to mend itself.

Ask me no questions, and I'll tell you no fibs.
