Thomas Overbury
All the carnall beauty of my wife, Is but skin deep.
Overbury quotes
In part to blame is she,
Which hath without consent bin only tride:
He comes to neere that comes to be denide.
He disdains all things above his reach, and preferreth all countries above his own.

Overbury Thomas quotes
The man who has not anything to boast of but his illustrious ancestors, is like a potato—the only good belonging to him is underground.
