Go to your business, pleasure, whilst I go to my pleasure, business
I weigh the man, not his title; 'tis not the king's stamp can make the metal better
Poets, like whores, are only hated by each other
Next to the pleasure of finding a new mistress is that of being rid of an old one.
Wit is more necessary than beauty; and I think no young woman ugly that has it, and no handsome woman agreeable without it.
Good fellowship and friendship are lasting, rational and manly pleasures.
And with faint praises one another damn.
A mistress should be like a little country retreat near the town, not to dwell in constantly, but only for a night and away.
Mistresses are like books; if you pore upon them too much, they doze you and make you unfit for company; but if used discreetly, you are the fitter for conversation by em.
I have heard people eat most heartily of another man's meat, that is, what they do not pay for.
Hunger, revenge, to sleep are petty foes, But only death the jealous eyes can close
Poets, like friends to whom you are in debt, you hate.
He's a fool that marries, but he's a greater that does not marry a fool; what is wit in a wife good for, but to make a man a cuckold?
Women serve but to keep a man from better company.
I weigh the man, not his title; 't is not the king's stamp can make the metal better.
