William Rowley

English Actor, Playwright and Jacobean Dramatist

"There’s no way to make sorrow light But in the noble bearing; be content; Blows given from heaven are our due punishment; All shipwrecks are not drownings; you see buildings Made fairer from their ruins."

"In order to set forth the goodness of God towards myself, I have thought it prudent to record some of the leading incidents of my life, as a means of setting forth to my children that He is a rewarder of them who diligently seek Him. "

"The worlde bie diffraunce ys ynn orderr founde."
