    The original is, “Heav’n has no Rage, like Love to Hatred turn’d, Nor Hell a Fury, like a Woman scorn’d”

    It’s from the play The Mourning Bride, Act iii. Sc. 8., written in 1697 by William Congreve.

    It is one of the most misquoted lines in the English language.

    In that same play, Act i Sc, 1, the following line appears:

    “Musick has Charms to sooth a savage Breast, To soften Rocks, or bend a knotted Oak. I’ve read, that things inanimate have mov’d, And, as with living Souls, have been form’d by Magick Numbers and persuasive Sound.”

    Also frequently misquoted by the semi-literate.
