SHACKERLEY MARMION (SHAKERLEY MARMION)
English dramatist
(1603 - 1639)

Tell me what you find better, or more honorable than age. Is not wisdom entailed upon it? Take the pre-eminence of it in everything; and in an old friend, in old wine, in an old pedigree.
      - [Age]

There is, sir, a critical minute in
  Ev'ry man's wooing, when his mistress may
    Be won, which if he carelessly neglect
      To prosecute, he may wait long enough
        Before he gain the like opportunity.
      - [Courtship]

What find you better or more honorable than age? . . . Take the preeminence of it in everything;--in an old friend, in old wine, in an old pedigree.
      - Antiquary (act II, sc. 1) [Age]
