John Evelyn
The title that has consecrated this Alter is the Marriage of Souls, and the Golden thread that tyes the hearts of all the world; I tell you, Madam, Freindshipp is beyond all relations of flesh and blood, because it is less materiall.
Evelyn quotes
He was universally belov'd, Hospitable, Generous, Learned in many things, skill'd in Musick, a very greate Cherisher of Learned men of whom he had the conversation.
This Knight was indeede a valiant Gent: but not a little given to romance, when he spake of himselfe.

Evelyn John quotes
I saw Hamlet Pr: of Denmark played: but now the old playe began to disgust this refined age.
