CYRIL TOURNEUR (TURNOUR OR TURNER)
English dramatist and poet
(c. 1575 - 1626)

In goodness, rich men should transcend the poor, as clouds the earth; raised by the comfort of the sun to water dry and barren grounds.
      - [Wealth]

Since, by your greatness, you
  Are nearer heaven in place; be nearer it
    In goodness: rich men should transcend the poor,
      As clouds the earth; rais'd by the comfort of
        The sun, to water dry and barren grounds.
      - [Greatness]

A drunkard clasp his teeth and not undo 'em,
  To suffer wet damnation to run through 'em.
      - The Revenger's Tragedy (act III, sc. 1)
        [Intemperance]
