WILLIAM HABINGTON (HABBINGTON)
English poet
(1605 - 1654)

As yourselves your empires fall,
  And every kingdom hath a grave.
      - [Royalty]

He who is good is happy.
      - [Happiness]

No distinction is 'tween man and man,
  But as his virtues add to him a glory
    Or vices cloud him.
      - [Birth]

Like the violet, which alone
  Prospers in some happy shade,
    My Castara lives unknown
      To no looser eye betrayed.
      - Castara, (in Elton's edition, p. 166)
        [Modesty]

The starres, bright sentinels of the skies.
      - Dialogue between Night and Araphil (l. 3)
        [Stars]

As ourselves your empires fall,
  And every kingdom hath a grave.
      - Night [Royalty]

I hate the countrie's dirt and manners, yet
  I love the silence; I embrace the wit;
    A courtship, flowing here in full tide.
      But loathe the expense, the vanity and pride.
        No place each way is happy.
      - To my Noblest Friend, I.C. Esquire
        [Country Life]
