John Fletcher Quotes JOHN FLETCHER QUOTES


John Fletcher (1579-1625)

English dramatist

Man is his own star, and the soul that can
Render an honest and a perfect man
Commands all light, all influence, all fate.
Nothing to him falls early, or too late.
Our acts our angels are, or good or ill,
Our fatal shadows that walk by us still.

JOHN FLETCHER, The Honest Man's Fortune

O woman, perfect woman! what distraction
Was meant to mankind when thou wast made a devil!

JOHN FLETCHER, Monsieur Thomas

Of all the paths lead to a woman's love
Pity's the straightest.

JOHN FLETCHER, The Knight of Malta

Care-charming Sleep, thou easer of all woes,
Brother to Death, sweetly thyself dispose.

JOHN FLETCHER, The Tragedy of Valentinian

Come, sing now, sing; for I know you sing well;
I see you have a singing face.

JOHN FLETCHER, The Wild Goose Chase

Fountain-heads and pathless groves,
Places which pale passion loves!

JOHN FLETCHER, The Island Princess

Joys as winged dreams fly fast,
Why should sadness longer last?
Grief is but a wound to woe;
Gentlest fair, mourn, mourn no moe.

JOHN FLETCHER, The Queen of Corinth

There's naught in this life sweet
But only melancholy;
O sweetest melancholy!

JOHN FLETCHER, The Nice Valor

That place that does contain
My books, the best companions, is to me
A glorious court, where hourly I converse
With the old sages and philosophers.

To which the gods must yield; and I obey,
Till I redeem it by some glorious way.
