I am a printer, and a printer ...

I am a printer, and a printer of news; ... I'll give anything for a good copy now, be it true or false, so be it news.

Ben Jonson 307 quotes

Good men but see death, the wi...

Good men but see death, the wicked taste it.

Ben Jonson 307 quotes

If I freely may discover
...

If I freely may discover
What should please me in my lover,
I would have her fair and witty,
Savouring more of court than city;
A little proud, but full of pity;
Light and humorous in her toying,
Oft building hopes, and soon destroying,
Long, but sweet in the enjoying;
Neither too easy nor to hard;
All extremes I would have barr'd.

Ben Jonson 307 quotes

Each petty hand

Each petty hand
Can steer a ship becalm'd; but he that will
Govern and carry her to her ends, must know
His tides, his currents, how to shift his sails;
What she will bear in foul, what in fair weathers;
Where her springs are, her leaks, and how to stop 'em;
What strands, what shelves, what rocks do threaten her.

Ben Jonson 307 quotes

How near to good is what is fa...

How near to good is what is fair!

Ben Jonson 307 quotes

Heaven prepares good men with ...

Heaven prepares good men with crosses; but no ill can happen to a good man.

Ben Jonson 307 quotes

A good man will avoid the spot...

A good man will avoid the spot of any sin. The very aspersion is grievous, which makes him choose his way in his life, as he would in his journey.

Ben Jonson 307 quotes

How Fortune piles her sports when she begins to practise them!

Ben Jonson 307 quotes

Nor shall our cups make any gu...

Nor shall our cups make any guilty men;
But at our parting, we will be, as when
We innocently met.

Ben Jonson 307 quotes

Rich apparel has strange virtu...

Rich apparel has strange virtues; it makes him that hath it without means esteemed for an excellent wit; he that enjoys it with means puts the world in remembrance of his means.

Ben Jonson 307 quotes

Out of clothes out of countena...

Out of clothes out of countenance, out of countenance out of wit.

Ben Jonson 307 quotes

Still to be neat, still to be ...

Still to be neat, still to be drest,
As you were going to a feast,
Still to be powder'd, all perfum'd.
Lady, it is to be presumed,
Though art's hid causes are not found,
All is not sweet, all is not sound.

Ben Jonson 307 quotes

Nothing is more short-lived th...

Nothing is more short-lived than pride.

Ben Jonson 307 quotes

No simple word

No simple word
That shall be uttered at our mirthful board,
Shall make us sad next morning; or affright
The liberty that we'll enjoy to-night.

Ben Jonson 307 quotes

He that is respectless in his ...

He that is respectless in his courses oft sells his reputation at cheap market.

Ben Jonson 307 quotes

The two chief things that give...

The two chief things that give a man reputation in counsel, are the opinion of his honesty, and the opinion of his wisdom; the authority of those two will persuade.

Ben Jonson 307 quotes

Tis not the wholesome sharp mo...

Tis not the wholesome sharp mortality,
Or modest anger of a satiric spirit,
That hurts or wounds the body of a state,
But the sinister application
Of the malicious, ignorant, and base
Interpreter; who will distort and strain
The general scope and purpose of an author
To his particular and private spleen.

Ben Jonson 307 quotes

Fear to do base, unworthy thin...

Fear to do base, unworthy things is valor; if they be one to us, to suffer them is valor too.

Ben Jonson 307 quotes

That I might live alone once w...

That I might live alone once with my gold!
O, 'tis a sweet companion! kind and true:
A man may trust it when his father cheats him,
Brother, or friend, or wife. O wondrous pelf!
That which makes all men false, is true itself.

Ben Jonson 307 quotes

Books are faithful repositories, which may be awhile neglected or forgotten, but when they are opened again, will again impart their instruction.
