(1674 - 1718)
 << Prev Page    Displaying page 3 of 3

Thus some who have the Stars survey'd
  Are ignorantly led
    To think those glorious Lamps were made
      To light Tom Fool to bed.
      - Song on a Fine Woman Who Had a Dull Husband
        [Stars]

From every blush that kindles in thy cheeks,
  Ten thousand little loves and graces spring
    To revel in the roses.
      - Tamerlane (act I, sc. 1) [Blushes]

Is she not more than painting can express,
  Or youthful poets fancy, when they love?
      - The Fair Penitent (act III, sc. 1)
        [Beauty]

Death is the privilege of human nature,
  And life without it were not worth our taking:
    Thither the poor, the pris'ner, and the mourner
      Fly for relief, and lay the burthens down.
      - The Fair Penitent (act V, sc. 1, l. 138)
        [Death]

Is this that haughty, gallant, gay Lothario?
      - The Fair Penitent (act V, sc. 1, l. 37),
        taken from Massinger's "Fatal Dowry"
        [Pride]

As if Misfortune made the Throne her Seat,
  And none could be unhappy but the Great.
      - The Fair Penitent--Prologue (l. 3)
        [Greatness : Misfortune]

A pressing lover seldom wants success,
  Whilst the respectful, like the Greek, sits down
    And wastes a ten years' siege before one town.
      - To the Inconstant--Epilogue (l. 18)
        [Wooing]
