Thomas Kyd
In time the savage bull sustains the yoke,
In time all haggard hawks will stoop to lure,
In time small wedges cleave the hardest oak,
In time the flint is pierced with softest shower.
Kyd quotes
Thus must we toil in other men's extremes,
That know not how to remedy our own.
For what's a play without a woman in it?

Kyd Thomas quotes
My son and what's a son? A thing begot
Within a pair of minutes, thereabout:
A lump bred up in darkness.
Kyd Thomas
Evil news fly faster still than good.
Thomas Kyd quotes
What outcries pluck me from my naked bed
And chill my throbbing heart with trembling fear.
Thomas Kyd
Oh eyes, no eyes, but fountains fraught with tears;
Oh life, no life, but lively form of death;
Oh world, no world, but mass of public wrongs,
Confused and filled with murder and misdeeds.
Kyd Thomas quotes
Dost thou think to live till his old doublet will make thee a new truss?
Duly twice a morning
Would I be sprinkling it with fountain-water.
At last it grew, and grew, and bore, and bore,
Till at the length
It grew a gallows, and did bear our son,
It bore thy fruit and mine: O wicked, wicked plant.
Kyd Thomas
As I am never better than when I am mad; then methinks I am a brave fellow; then I do wonders: but reason abuseth me, and there's the torment, there's the hell.
