Quote of Richard Brinsley Sheridan

Richard Brinsley Sheridan

School for Scandal. 

Act iii. Sc. 3. 

Here's to the maiden of bashful fifteen; 
Here's to the widow of fifty; 
Here's to the flaunting, extravagant quean, 
And here's to the housewife that's thrifty. 
Let the toast pass; 
Drink to the lass; 
I'll warrant she'll prove an excuse for the glass.
