Francis Beaumont Quotes

    Fie On Love

    Now fie on foolish love, it not befits
    Or man or woman know it.
    Love was not meant for people in their wits,
    And they that fondly show it
    Betray the straw, and features in their brain,
    And shall have Bedlam for their pain:
    If simple love be such a curse,
    To marry is to make it ten times worse.
