SIR WILLIAM BROWNE (1)
English poet and translator
(c. 1590 - 1645)

Oft the cloud that wraps the present hour serves but to brighten all our future days.
      - [Affliction]

For those sacred powers
  Tread on oblivion: no desert of ours
    Can be entombed in their celestial breasts.
      - Britannia's Pastorals
         (bk. III, song II, st. 23) [Oblivion]

Whose life is a bubble, and in length a span.
      - Brittania Pastorals (bk. I, song II)
        [Life]

Well languag'd Danyel.
      - Brittania's Pastorals
         (bk. II, song 2, l. 303) [Language]

The king to Oxford sent a troop of horse,
  For Tories own no argument but force;
    With equal care, to Cambridge books he sent,
      For Whigs allow no force but argument.
      - Epigram--In reply to Dr. Trapp [Learning]

If heaven send no supplies,
  The fairest blossom of the garden dies.
      - Visions (ch. V) [Providence]
