FRANCIS BEAUMONT
English playwright and dramatic poet
(1586 - 1616)

Ev'ry word he speaks is a syren's note
  To draw the careless hearer.
      - [Eloquence]

Faith without works is like a bird without wings; though she may hop with her companions on earth, yet she will never fly with them to heaven; but when both are joined together, then doth the soul mount up to her eternal rest.
      - [Faith]

Give me flattery--flattery; the food of courts, that I may rock him, and lull him in the down of his desires.
      - [Flattery]

Grace comes often clad in the dusky robe of desolation.
      - [Grace]

Here's an acre sown indeed,
  With the richest royalest seed.
      - on the tombs in Westminster Abbey [Graves]

If men wound you with injuries, meet them with patience; hasty words rankle the wound, soft language dresses it, forgiveness cures it, and oblivion takes away the scar. It is more noble by silence to avoid an injury by argument to overcome it.
      - [Injury]

Interest makes some people blind, and others quick-sighted.
      - [Interest]

Into these ears of mine,
  These credulous ears, he pour'd the sweetest words
    That art or love could frame.
      - [Courtship]

Let no man fear to die, we love to sleep all,
  And death is but the sounder sleep.
      - [Death]

Let us have care not to disclose our hearts to the those who shut up theirs against us.
      - [Feeling]

The true way to gain much, is never to desire to gain too much.
      - [Desire]

'Twas he
  Gave heat unto the injury, which returned
    Like a petard ill lighted, unto the bosom
      Of himn gave fire to it.
      - Fair Maid of the Inn (act II) [Injury]

Then did she lift her hands unto his chin,
  And praised the pretty dimpling of his skin.
      - Salmacis and Hermaphroditus (l. 661)
        [Dimples]
