PHINEAS FLETCHER
English poet
(1584 - 1650)

Faint heart ne'er won fair lady.
      - [Proverbs]

Ah, Foole! faint heart faire lady n'ere could win.
      - Brittain's Ida (canto V, st. 1) [Wooing]

The dying swan, when years her temples pierce,
  In music-strains breathes out her life and verse,
    And, chanting her own dirge, tides on her wat'ry hearse.
      - Purple Island (canto I) [Swans]

Beauty when most unclothed is clothed best.
      - Sicelides (act II, sc. 4) [Apparel]

When needs he must, yet faintly then he praises;
  Somewhat the deed, much more the means he raises:
    So marreth what he makes, and praising most, dispraises.
      - The Purple Island (canto VII, st. 67)
        [Praise]
