JOHN MARSTON
English dramatist, satirist and divine
(1575? - 1634)

A strong conceit is rich; so most men deem:
  If not to be, 'tis comfort yet to seem.
      - [Conceit]

Fear is my vassal, when I frown he flies;
  A hundred times in life a coward dies.
      - [Cowards]

He's a king,
  A right true king, that dares do aught save wrong;
    Fears nothing mortal, but to be unjust;
      Who is not blown up with the flatt'ring puffs
        Of spongy sycophants; who stands unmov'd
          Despite the jostling of opinion.
      - [Kings]

Marry! no, faith; husbands are like lots in
  The lottery, you may draw forty blanks
    Before you find one that has any prize
      In him; a husband generally is a
        Careless domineering thing, that grows like
          Coral; which as long as it is under water
            Is soft and tender; but as soon
              As it has got its branch above the waves
                Is presently hard, stiff, not to be bow'd.
      - [Husbands]

Much danger makes great hearts most resolute.
      - [Courage]

O calm, hush'd, rich content,
  Is there a being, blessedness, without thee?
    How soft thou down'st the couch where thou dost rest,
      Nectar to life thou sweet ambrosian feast.
      - [Contentment]

See! the dapple gray coursers of the morn
  Beat up the light with their bright silver hoofs,
    And chase it through the sky!
      - [Dawn]

Sing of the nature of women, and then the song shall be surely full of variety,--old crotchets and most sweet closes. It shall be humorous, grave, fantastical, amorous, melancholy, sprightly,--one in all, all in one.
      - [Caprice]

Speak, speak, let terror strike slaves mute,
  Much danger makes great hearts most resolute.
      - [Danger]

Through danger safety comes--through trouble rest.
      - [Adversity]

Wink and shut their apprehensions up.
      - Antonio's Revenge (prolog) [Fear]

A fool! my coxcomb for a fool!
      - Parasitaster [Folly]

A man! A man! My kingdom for a man!
      - Scourge of Villainy [Man]

All the fatt's in the fire.
      - What You Will (1607) [Fire]
