Christopher Marlowe (1564 – 1593)


English dramatist, poet and translator of the Elizabethan era.
Christopher Marlowe
If we say that we have no sin
We deceive ourselves, and there is no truth in us.
Why then, belike, we must sin,
And consequently die.
Ay, we must die an everlasting death.
Marlowe quotes
My swelling heart for very anger breaks.
Marlowe
Comparisons are odious.




Marlowe Christopher quotes
Excess of wealth is cause of covetousness.
Marlowe Christopher
That was in another country, and besides, the wench is dead.
Christopher Marlowe quotes
FRIAR BARNARDINE. Thou hast committed--
BARABAS. Fornication: but that was in another country; And besides, the wench is dead.
Christopher Marlowe
So march away, and let due praise be given
Neither to fate nor fortune, but to Heaven.
Marlowe Christopher quotes
Now, Faustus, must thou needs be damned?
And canst thou not be saved?
What boots it then to think on God or heaven?
Away with such vain fancies and despair,
Despair in God and trust in Beelzebub.
Now go not backward. No, Faustus, be resolute.
Why waverest thou? Oh, something soundeth in mine ears
Abjure this magic, turn to God again.
Marlowe
Where death cuts off the progress of his pomp
And murderous fates throw all his triumphs down.
Marlowe Christopher
I'm armed with more than complete steel,
The justice of my quarrel.
Christopher Marlowe
O, thou art fairer than the evening air
Clad in the beauty of a thousand stars.




Christopher Marlowe quotes
Who ever loved that loved not at first sight?
Christopher Marlowe
Oh Faustus, lay that damned book aside,
And gaze not on it lest it tempt thy soul
And heap God's heavy wrath upon thy head.
Marlowe quotes
Let Earth and Heaven his timeless death deplore,
For both their worths shall equal him no more.
Marlowe Christopher
What should a priest do with so fair a house?
A prison may best beseem his holiness.
Marlowe Christopher quotes
Come, let us march against the powers of heaven,
And set black streamers in the firmament,
To signify the slaughter of the gods.
Christopher Marlowe
And sooner shall the sun fall from his sphere
Than Tamburlaine be slain or overcome.
Christopher Marlowe quotes
How am I glutted with conceit of this!
Shall I make spirits fetch me what I please,
Resolve me of all ambiguities,
Perform what desperate enterprise I will?
Christopher Marlowe
Oh gentle Faustus, leave this damned art,
This magic, that will charm they soul to hell,
And quite bereave thee of salvation.
Though thou hast now offended like a man,
Do not persever in it like a devil.
Marlowe Christopher
My heart is harden'd, I cannot repent.
