Francis Beaumont Quotes

    True Beauty

    May I find a woman fair,
    And her mind as clear as air,
    If her beauty go alone,
    'Tis to me as if't were none.

    May I find a woman rich,
    And not of too high a pitch;
    If that pride should cause disdain,
    Tell me, lover, where's thy gain?
