Francis Quarles (1592-1644)

My soul, sit thou a patient looker-on;
Judge not the play before the play is done:
Her plot hath many changes; every day
Speaks a new scene; the last act crowns the play.
Francis Quarles (1592-1644)_Epigram_, "Respice Finem"

A full tongue and an empty brain are seldom parted. - Francis Quarles


Thomas De Quincey

If once a man indulges himself in murder, very soon he comes to think little of robbing; and from robbing he next comes to drinking and Sabbath-breaking, and from that to incivility and procrastination. -- Thomas De Quincey

Quintilian (35-90 A.D.)

The learned understand the theory of art, the unlearned its pleasure. -- Quintilian (35-90 A.D.) De Institutione Oratoria
