John Fletcher (1579 – 1625)

Jacobean playwright.
John Fletcher
He 'as had a stinger.
Fletcher quotes
First come, first served.
Of all the paths lead to a woman's love
Pity's the straightest.

Fletcher John quotes
Let's meet and either do or die.
Fletcher John
'Tis a word that's quickly spoken,
Which being restrained, a heart is broken.
John Fletcher quotes
Hence, all you vain delights,
As short as are the nights
Wherein you spend your folly!
There's naught in this life sweet
But only melancholy;
O sweetest melancholy!
John Fletcher
Thy clothes are all the soul thou hast.
Fletcher John quotes
From the crown of our head to the sole of our foot.
Hide, oh, hide those hills of snow
Which thy frozen bosom bears,
On whose tops the pinks that grow
Are of those that April wears!
But first set my poor heart free,
Bound in those icy chains by thee.
Fletcher John
Though I say't that should not say't.
John Fletcher
What mare's nest hast thou found?

John Fletcher quotes
Let them learn first to show pity at home.
John Fletcher
All things that are
Made for our general uses are at war,
Even we among ourselves.
Fletcher quotes
Vow me no vows.
Fletcher John
'Twas when young Eustace wore his heart in's breeches.
Fletcher John quotes
Three merry boys, and three merry boys,
And three merry boys are we,
As ever did sing in a hempen string
Under the gallow-tree.
John Fletcher
Man is his own star, and the soul that can
Render an honest and a perfect man
Commands all light, all influence, all fate.
Nothing to him falls early, or too late.
Our acts our angels are, or good or ill,
Our fatal shadows that walk by us still.
John Fletcher quotes
Fountain heads and pathless groves,
Places which pale passion loves.
John Fletcher
Fortune, now see, now proudly
Pluck off thy veil, and view thy triumph; look,
Look what thou hast brought this land to!
Fletcher John
Let the world slide.
