Horses carry us, trees shade us; but they know it not  (Ben Jonson Quotes) That praises are without reason lavished on the dead, and that the honours due only to are paid to antiquity, is a complaint likely to be always continued by those who, being able to add nothing to truth, hope for eminence from the heresies of paradox; or those who, being forced by disappointment upon consolatory expedients, are willing to hope from posterity what the present age refuses, and flatter themselves that the regard which is yet denied by envy will be at last bestowed by time  (Ben Jonson Quotes) A woman, the more curious she is about her face, is commonly the more careless about her house  (Ben Jonson Quotes) Let them call it mischief: When it is past and prospered t’will be virtue  (Ben Jonson Quotes) Talking and eloquence are not the same: to speak, and to speak well, are two things  (Ben Jonson Quotes) Follow a shadow, it still flies you; Seem to fly it, it will pursue: So court a mistress, she denies you; Let her alone, she will court you  (Ben Jonson Quotes) It is as great a spite to be praised in the wrong place, and by a wrong person, as can be done to a noble nature  (Ben Jonson Quotes) It is an art to have so much judgment as to apparel a lie well, to give it a good dressing  (Ben Jonson Quotes) I loved the man and do honor his memory, on this side idolatry, as much as any  (Ben Jonson Quotes) Whom the disease of talking still once possesseth, he can never hold his peace. Nay, rather than he will not discourse he will hire men to hear him  (Ben Jonson Quotes) It is less dishonour to hear imperfectly than to speak imperfectly. The ears are excused: The understanding is not  (Ben Jonson Quotes) T is virtue which they want; and, wanting it, honor no garment to their backs can fit  (Ben Jonson Quotes) I have discovered that a famed familiarity in great ones is a note of certain usurpation on the less; for great and popular men feign themselves to be servants to others to make those slaves to them  (Ben Jonson Quotes) They talk as they are wont, not as I merit; traduce by custom, as most dogs do bark  (Ben Jonson Quotes) Money never made any man rich, but his mind. He that can order himself to the law of nature, is not only without the sense, but the fear of poverty  (Ben Jonson Quotes) When affliction thunders over our roofs, to hide our heads, and run into our graves, shows us no men, but makes us fortune’s slaves  (Ben Jonson Quotes) Books are faithful repositories, which may be awhile neglected or forgotten, but when they are opened again, will again impart their instruction  (Ben Jonson Quotes) Rich apparel has strange virtues; it makes him that hath it without means esteemed for an excellent wit; he that enjoys it with means puts the world in remembrance of his means  (Ben Jonson Quotes) I am beholden to calumny, that she hath so endeavored and taken pains to belie me.

The very aspersion is grievous, which makes him choose his way in his life, as he would in his journey  (Ben Jonson Quotes) Tis no sin love’s fruits to steal; but the sweet thefts to reveal; to be taken, to be seen, these have crimes accounted been  (Ben Jonson Quotes) Blest be the hour wherein I bought this book; his studies happy that composed the book, and the man fortunate that sold the book  (Ben Jonson Quotes) Envy sets the stronger seal on desert; if he have no enemies, I should esteem his fortune most wretched  (Ben Jonson Quotes) As if the wind, not she, did walk, nor pressed a flower, nor bowed a stalk  (Ben Jonson Quotes) Ambition is a rebel both to the soul and reason, and enforces all laws, all conscience; treads upon religion, and offers violence to nature’s self  (Ben Jonson Quotes)
