Creative Quotations from . . .
Nicholas Rowe
(1674-1718) born on
Nov 22
English writer, poet. He was the first to attempt a critical edition of the works of William Shakespeare; became poet laureate in 1715.
Death is the privilege of human nature,
And life without it were not worth our taking.

Is this that haughty, gallant, gay Lothario?
Is she not more than painting can express,
Or youthful poets fancy when they love?
Guilt is the source of sorrow,
'tis the fiend,/Th' avenging fiend,
that follows us behind
With whips and stings.
As if Misfortune made the throne her seat,
And none could be unhappy but the great.
