Ben Jonson

Ben Jonson

was an English Renaissance dramatist, poet and actor
No man is so foolish but he may sometimes give another good counsel, and no man so wise that he may not easily err if he takes no other counsel than his own. He that is taught only by himself has a fool for a master.More Ben Jonson quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Many punishments sometimes, and in some cases, as much discredit a prince as many funerals a physician.More Ben Jonson quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Follow a shadow, it still flies you,
Seem to fly, it will pursue:
So court a mistress, she denies you;
Let her alone, she will court you.
Say are not women truly, then,
Styled but the shadows of us men?More Ben Jonson quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
To speak and to speak well, are two things. A fool may talk, but a wise
man speaks.More Ben Jonson quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Forbear, you things
That stand upon the pinnacles of state,
To boast your slippery height! when you do fall,
You dash yourselves in pieces, ne'er to rise:
And he that lends you pity, is not wise.More Ben Jonson quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
