1. “A fly may sting a stately horse and make him wince; But one is but an insect and the other is a horse still” – Samuel Johnson
Meaning – A person of great stature does not lose his greatness because some insignificant person says disparaging things about him.
2. “Heaven has no rage like love to hatred turned, Nor hell a fury like a woman scorned” – William Congreve
Meaning – Love, when turned to hatred is the most dangerous form of (righteous) anger- and the anger of a woman who has been rejected (and insulted) is a force to be reckoned with.
