English Playwright, Poet
"No man is so foolish but he may sometimes give another good counsel, and no man so wise that he may not easily err if he takes no other counsel than his own. He that is taught only by himself has a fool for a master."
"The two chief things that give a man reputation in counsel, are the opinion of his honesty, and the opinion of his wisdom; the authority of those two will persuade."
"Very few men are wise by their own counsel, or learned by their own teaching; for he that was taught by himself had a fool to his master."
"When a virtuous man is raised, it brings gladness to his friends, grief to his enemies, and glory to his posterity."
"Fear to do base and unworthy things is valor; if they be done to us, to suffer them is also valor."
