George Chapman

English dramatist, translator, and poet.
Fortune, the great commandress of the world,
Hath divers ways to advance her followers:
To some she gives honor without deserving;
To other some, deserving without honor;
Some wit, some wealth,--and some, wit without wealth;
Some wealth without wit; some nor wit nor wealth.More George Chapman quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Extremes, though contrary, have the like effects. Extreme heat kills, and so extreme cold: extreme love breeds satiety, and so extreme hatred; and too violent rigor tempts chastity, as does too much license.More George Chapman quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
To be praised by a man who has won his laurels.More George Chapman quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
