(Pistol:) And tidings do I bring and lucky joys
  And golden times and happy news of price.
    (Falstaff:) I pray thee now, deliver them like a man of this world.
      - William Shakespeare,
        King Henry the Fourth, Part II
         (Pistol & Falstaff at V, iii)

Ten day ago I drowned these news in tears;
  And now, to add more measure to your woes,
    I come to tell you things sith then befallen.
      - William Shakespeare,
        King Henry the Sixth, Part III
         (Warwick at II, i)

O, my sweet sir, news fitting to the night,
  Black, fearful, comfortless, and horrible.
      - William Shakespeare,
        The Life and Death of King John
         (Hubert at V, vi)

My heart hath one poor string to stay it by,
  Which holds but till thy news be uttered,
    And then all this thou seest is but a clod
      And module of confounded royalty.
      - William Shakespeare,
        The Life and Death of King John
         (King John at V, vii)

Master, master, old news! And such news as you never heard of!
      - William Shakespeare,
        The Taming of the Shrew
         (Biondello at III, ii)

How goes it now, sir? This news which is called true is so like an old tale that the verity of it is in strong suspicion.
      - William Shakespeare, The Winter's Tale
         (Second Gentleman at V, ii)

Nobody likes the bringer of bad news.
      - Sophocles

The news! our morning, noon and evening cry,
  Day after day repeats it till we die.
    For this the city, the critic, and the fop,
      Dally the hour away in tonsor's shop;
        For this the gossip takes her daily route,
          And wears your threshold and your patience out;
            For this we leave the parson in the lurch,
              And pause to prattle on our way to church;
                Even when some coffin'd friend we gather round,
                  We ask--"what news?"--then lay him in the ground.
      - Charles Sprague

It is not an event, it is a piece of news.
  [Fr., Ce n'est pas un evenement, c'est une nouvelle.]
      - Charles Maurice de Talleyrand-Perigord,
        on hearing of Napoleon's death

When ill news comes too late to be serviceable to your neighbor, keep it to yourself.
      - Johann Georg von Zimmermann
