George Wither
And he that gives us in these days
New Lords may give us new laws.
Wither quotes
Hang sorrow! care will kill a cat,
And therefore let ís be merry.
Jack shall pipe and Gill shall dance.

Wither George quotes
And I oft have heard defended,ó
Little said is soonest mended.
Wither George
Though I am young, I scorn to flit
On the wings of borrowed wit.
George Wither quotes
Shall I, wasting in despair,
Die because a womanís fair?
Or make pale my cheeks with care,
íCause anotherís rosy are?
Be she fairer than the day,
Or the flowery meads in May,
If she be not so to me,
What care I how fair she be?
George Wither
I loved a lass, a fair one,
As fair as e'er was seen;
She was indeed a rare one,
Another Sheba queen:
But, fool as then I was,
I thought she loved me too:
But now, alas! she's left me,
Falero, lero, loo!
