January 25, 2007: Goldsmith on The Chase - 0 Comments

"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."
- Goldsmith, She Stoops to Conquer, 1773.
