A sentence is but a cheveril glove to a good wit: how quickly the wrong side may be turned outward!
There is no darkness, but ignorance.
That orbed continent the fire that severs day from night.
Love sought is good; but given unsought is better.
Better a witty fool, than a foolish wit.
What, man! defy the devil: consider, he’s an enemy to mankind.
Such as we are made of, such we be.
O, had I but followed the arts!
Many a good hanging prevents a bad marriage.
If music be the food of love, play on.
I was adored once too.
I hate ingratitude more in a man Than lying, vainness, babbling drunkenness, Or any taint of vice.
