WEBSTER, John Quotes
(1602-1624), English dramatist
There is not in nature a thing that makes man so deformed, so beastly, as doth intemperate anger.
Glories, like glow-worms afar off, shine bright, but looked at near have neither heat nor light.
Who fights with passions and overcomes, that man is armed with the best virtue—passive fortitude.
Gold that buys health can never be ill spent; nor hours laid out in harmless merriment.
Heaven's gates are not so highly arched as princes' palaces; they that enter there must go upon their knees.
I do love these ancient ruins.—We never tread upon them but we set our foot upon some reverend history.
