Who knows these plays?

The Shoemaker’s Holiday

The Honest Whore.—Part the First

The Honest Whore.—Part the Second

Old Fortunatus

The Witch of Edmonton

They are by Thomas Dekker (c1572-1632).

And then:

In seed-time learn, in harvest teach, in winter enjoy.

Drive your cart and your plough over the bones of the dead.

The road of excess leads to the palace of wisdom.

Prudence is a rich ugly old maid courted by Incapacity.

He who desires, but acts not, breeds pestilence.

The cut worm forgives the plough.

Dip him in the river who loves water.

A fool sees not the same tree that a wise man sees.

He whose face gives no light shall never become a star….

Yes, William Blake’s “Proverbs of Hell” from The Marriage of Heaven and Hell (1790-1793).
