Is it not true which Seneca reporteth, that as too much bending breaketh the bowe, so too much remission spoyleth the minde?
Your eyes are so sharpe that you cannot onely looke through a Milstone, but cleane through the minde.john lyly
Was never eie did see that face,Was never eare did heare that tong,Was never minde did minde his grace,That ever thought the travell long;But eies and eares and ev'ry thoughtWere with his sweete perfections caught.mathew roydon
And thou my minde aspire to higher things; Grow rich in that which never taketh rust.philip sidney
The gentle minde by gentle deeds is knowne; For a man by nothing is so well bewrayed As by his manners.Edmund Spenser
Was never eie did see that face, Was never eare did heare that tong, Was never minde did minde his grace, That ever thought the travell long, But eies and eares and ev'ry thought Were with his sweete perfections caught.
Since your eyes are so sharpe, that you cannot onely looke through a milstone, but cleane through the minde.john lyly
Time is tickell, and out of sight out of minde. Than catche and holde while I may, fast binde fast finde.
Shall I, to please another wine-sprung minde, Lose all mine own? God hath giv'n me a measure Short of His can and body; must I find A pain in that, wherein he finds a pleasure?George Herbert
My minde to me a kingdome is, Such perfect joy therein I finde As farre exceeds all earthly blisse That God or Nature hath assignde Though much I want that most would have Yet still my minde forbids to crave.
