Creative Quotations from . . .
Philip Massinger
(1583-1640) born on
English dramatist. His plays include "New Way to Pay Old Debts," 1633; he frequently collaborated with Fletcher.
Now speak,
Or be for ever silent.

And what, in a mean man, I should call folly,
Is in your majesty remarkable wisdom.
Death hath
had a thousand doors to let out life,
I shall find one. . . From a loath'd life,
I'll not an hour outlive.
Some undone widow sits upon mine arm,
And takes away the use of it; 1 and my sword,
Glued to my scabbard with wronged orphans' tears,
Will not be drawn.
Patience, the beggar's virtue,
Shall find no harbour here.
