GEORGE PEELE
English dramatist and poet
(1556 - 1596)

He must needs go that the devil drives.
      - [Fate]

Honor, the spur that pricks the princely mind.
      - [Honor]

Villain, a horse--Villain, I say, give me a horse to fly,
  To swim the river, villain, and to fly.
      - Battle of Alcazar (act V, l. 104) [Horses]

My merry, merry, merry roundelay,
  Concludes with Cupid's curse,
    They that do change old love for new,
      Pray gods, they change for worse!
      - Cupid's Curse; From the Arraignment of Paris
        [Change : Love]

Rhyme nor reason.
      - said by Edward I [Poetry]

What thing is love?--for (well I wot) love is a thing.
  It is a prick, it is a sting.
    It is a pretty, pretty thing;
      It is a fire, it is a coal,
        Whose flame creeps in at every hole!
      - Miscellaneous Poems--The Hunting of Cupid
        [Love]

His helmet now shall make a hive for bees,
  And lover's sonnets turn'd to holy psalms;
    A man at arms must now serve on his knees,
      And feed on prayers, which are his age's alms.
      - Sonnet ad fin--Polyhymnia [Peace]

His golden locks time hath to silver turned,
  O time too swift! O swiftness never ceasing!
    His youth 'gainst Time and Age hath ever spurned,
      But spurned in vain! Youth waneth by increasing.
      - Sonnet--Polyhymnia [Proverbs : Time]

His golden locks time hath to silver turned.
      - Sonnet--Polyhymnia [Proverbs : Time]

Honour, the spur that pricks the princely mind,
  To follow rule and climb the stately chair.
      - The Battle of Alcazar (act I) [Honor]
