HERRICK, Robert Quotes
(1591-1674), English poet
Against diseases the strongest fence is the defensive virtue, abstinence.
None pities him that's in the snare, who warned before, would not beware.
Go to your banquet, then, but use delight, so as to rise still with an appetite.
If well thou hast begun, go on; it is the end that crowns us, not the fight.
Attempt the end, and never stand to doubt; nothing so hard but search will find it out.
That man lives twice who lives the first fife well.
Nothing is so hard, but search will find it out.
Kings ought to shear, not skin their sheep.
It is the will that makes the action good or bad.
