fie

  1. (archaic, often followed by on or upon) Used to express distaste, disgust, or outrage.
    Fie upon you, you devilish fool!
    • March 1920, Alice Ballantine Kirjassoff (quote sourced to Kim Soan), “FORMOSA THE BEAUTIFUL”, in National Geographic Magazine[1], page 284-5:
      "I pleaded with my companions to spare his life, and they said, 'Fie! shame upon you! You have a Chinese heart.' Then they turned upon me to kill me as well, so I withdrew my petition. After that they cut off the woodsman's head, and we returned home."
