Today's FrankieFunFact.

William Congreve (1670-1729)
Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned.

Most of us are familiar with that saying. Many people also associate it with Shakespeare. There are just two problems with this: One, it was not written by Shakespeare. And, two, it is not completely accurate. First, it was written in 1697 by William Congreve in his novel "Mourning Bride". Second, it should read -

Heaven has no rage like love to hatred turned, nor Hell a fury like a woman scorned.
