 << Prev Page    Displaying page 8 of 8

That old bald cheater, Time.
      - The Poetaster (act I, sc. 5) [Time]

Her treading would not bend a blade of grass,
  Or shake the downy blow-ball from his stalk!
      - The Sad Shepherd [Footsteps]

And where she went, the flowers took thickest root,
  As she had sow'd them with her odorous foot.
      - The Sad Shepherd (act I, sc. 1) [Women]

Small Latin, and less Greek.
      - To the Memory of Shakespeare [Linguists]

Who falls for love of God shall rise a star.
      - Underwoods--An Epistle to a Friend (32)
        [Martyrdom : Stars]

Let those that merely talk and never think,
  That live in the wild anarchy of drink.
      - Underwoods--An Epistle, answering One asking to be sealed of the Tribe of Ben
        [Drinking]

Still may syllables jar with time,
  Still may reason war with rhyme,
    Resting never!
      - Underwoods--Fit of Rhyme Against Rhyme
        [Poetry]

In the hope to meet
  Shortly again, and make our absence sweet.
      - Underwoods--Miscellaneous Poems (LIX)
        [Absence]

So wise, so grave, of so perplex'd a tongue,
  And loud withal, that would not wag, not scarce
    Lie still without a fee.
      - Volpone (act I, sc. 1) [Judges]

'Tis no sin love's fruits to steal;
  But the sweet thefts to reveal;
    To be taken, to be seen,
      These have crimes accounted been.
      - Volpone (act III, sc. 6) [Crime]

A soft lip,
  Would tempt you to eternity of kissing!
      - Volpone; or, the Fox (act I, sc. 1)
        [Kisses]
