The world that I regard is my selfe, it is the Microcosme of mine owne frame, that I cast mine eye on; for the other, I use it but like my Globe, and turne it round sometimes for my recreation. Men that look upon my outside, perusing onely my condition, and fortunes, do erre in my altitude; for I am above Atlas his shoulders.
Methinks, I see the wanton houres flee, And as they passe, turne back and laugh at me.villiers, george, 2nd duke of buckingham
Then on the grounde Togyder rounde With manye a sadde stroke, They roll and rumble, They turne and tumble, As pigges do in a poke.
One good turne asketh another.
Thus times do shift; each thing his turne does hold; New things succeed, as former things grow old.Robert Herrick
