Thomas Shadwell

Her dazzle like the sun in his Meridian.

Dive, like ducks.

Lean as a skeleton.

A wise man is never disappointed. Man’s life is like a game at tables; if at any time the cast you most shall need does not come up, let that which comes instead of it be mended by your play.

Moody as a poet.

As ridiculous as to venture your life for another man’s quarrel.

Snores like the base-pipe of an Organ.

Thin as a skeleton.

Troublesome as a monkey.

Witless as a jackdaw.
