WILLIAM DRUMMOND (1)
Scottish poet
(1585 - 1649)

He that will not reason is a bigot, he that cannot reason is a fool, and he that dares not reason is a slave.
      - [Reason]

God never had a church but there, men say,
  The devil a chapel hath raised by some wiles,
    I doubted of this saw, till on a day
      I westward spied great Edinburgh's Saint Giles.
      - Posthumous Poems--A Proverb [Churches]

Let Zephyr only breathe
  And with her tresses play.
      - Song--Phoebus, Arise [Zephyrs]

So that my life be brave, what though not long?
      - Sonnet [Life]

What sweet delight a quiet life affords.
      - Sonnet (p. 38) [Repose]

He lives who dies to win a lasting name.
      - Sonnet (XII) [Names]

My life lies in those eyes which have me slain.
      - Sonnet XXIX (l. 14) [Eyes]

Sweet bird, that sing'st away the early hours,
  Of winter's past or coming void of care,
    Well pleased with delights which present are,
      Fair seasons, budding sprays, sweet-smelling flowers.
      - Sonnet--To a Nightingale [Nightingales]

Thrice happy he, who by some shady grove,
  Far from the clamorous world; doth live his own;
    Though solitary, who is not alone,
      But doth converse with that eternal love.
      - Urania; or, Spiritual Poems [Solitude]
