Creative Quotations from . . .
John Webster
(c. 1580-1625) born on
Dec 18
English playwright. He is best known for "The White Devil," a play based on the life of Vittoria Accoramboni.
I saw him even now going the way of all flesh, that is to say towards the kitchen.

My soul, like to a ship in a black storm,
Is driven, I know not whither.
Man may his fate foresee, but not prevent. . . . 'Tis better to be fortunate than wise.
Glories like glow-worms, afar off shine bright,
But looked to near, have neither heat nor light.
When I go to hell, I mean to carry a bribe: for look you, good gifts evermore make way for the worst persons.
