John Tobin (January 28, 1770December 7, 1804) was a British playwright, who was for most of his life unsuccessful, but in the year of his death made a hit with The Honey Moon.


  • The man that lays his hand upon a woman,
    Save in the way of kindness, is a wretch
    Whom't were gross flattery to name a coward.
    • The Honeymoon (1805), Act ii. Sc. 1.
  • She's adorned
    Amply that in her husband’s eye looks lovely,—
    The truest mirror that an honest wife
    Can see her beauty in.
    • The Honeymoon (1805), Act iii. Sc. 4.
