I have my beauty,--you your Art--
  Nay, do not start:
    One world was not enough for two
      Like me and you.
      - Oscar Wilde (Oscar Fingal O'Flahertie Wills Wilde),
        Her Voice

It is a very good world to live in,
  To lend, or to spend, or to give in;
    But to beg, or to borrow, or to get a man's own,
      It's the very worst world that ever was known.
      - John Wilmot, 2nd Earl of Rochester

When the fretful stir
  Unprofitable, and the fever of the world
    Have hung upon the beatings of my heart.
      - William Wordsworth,
        Lines composed a few miles above Tintern Alley

The world is too much with us; late and soon,
  Getting and spending we lay waste our powers;
    Little we see in Nature that is ours.
      - William Wordsworth, Miscellaneous Sonnets
         (pt. I, XXXIII)

The world's a bubble--and the life of man
  Less than a span.
    In his conception wretched, and from the womb
      So to the tomb.
        Nurst from the cradle, and brought up to years
          With cares and fears.
            Who then to frail mortality shall trust,
              But limns in water, and but writes in dust.
      - Sir Henry Wotton, The World--Ode to Bacon

To know the world, not love her, is thy point;
  She gives but little, nor that little long.
      - Edward Young

They most the world enjoy who east admire.
      - Edward Young, Night Thoughts
         (night VIII, l. 1,173)

Let not the cooings of the world allure thee:
  Which of her lovers ever found her true?
      - Edward Young, Night Thoughts
         (night VIII, l. 1.279)

Man of the World (for such wouldst thou be called)--
  And art thou proud of that inglorious style?
      - Edward Young, Night Thoughts
         (night VIII, l. 8)
