Thomas Otway Quote

How many men
Have spent their blood in their dear country's service,
Yet now pine under want; while selfish slaves,
That even would cut their throats whom now they fawn on,
Like deadly locusts, eat the honey up,
Which those industrious bees so hardly toil'd for.


The Orphan, Or, The Unhappy-marriage (ed. 1703)
