No man is happy but by comparison.
Every man loves what he is good at.
And wit's the noblest frailty of the mind.
The haste of a fool is the slowest thing in the world.
I am, out of the ladies' company, like a fish out of the water.
Words may be false and full of art; Sighs are the natural language of the heart.
Halcyon days, now wars are ending.
You shall find where-e'er you sail
Tritons all the while attending
With a kind and gentle gale.
Love Quickly Is Pall'd
Love quickly is pall'd,
Tho' with labour 'tis gain'd;
Wine never does cloy
Tho' with ease 'tis obtain'd.
We sing while you sigh,
We laugh while you weep;
Love robs you of rest,
Wine lulls us asleep.
Love In Their Little Veins Inspires
Love in their little veins inspires
their cheerful notes, their soft desires.
While heat makes buds and blossoms spring,
those pretty couples love and sing.
But winter puts out their desire,
and half the year they want love's fire.
