Creative Quotations from . . .
John Ford
(1586-1640) born on
Feb 01
English dramatist. His melancholy plays include "Broken Heart," 1633.
Nice philosophy
May tolerate unlikely arguments,
But heaven admits no jest.

Busy opinion is an idle fool.
Why, I hold fate
Clasped in my fist, and could command the course
Of time's eternal motion, hadst thou been
One thought more steady than an ebbing sea.
Whilst we strive
To live most free, we're caught in our own toils.
How much we fight with weakness to preserve thee.
