Walter Raleigh (Writer)

Every fool knoweth that hatreds are the cinders of affection.
Walter Raleigh hatred
No man is wise or safe, but he that is honest.
Walter Raleigh man
If all the world and love were young, And truth in every shepherd's tongue, These pretty pleasures might me move To live with thee and be thy Love.
Walter Raleigh love
Go, Soul, the body’s guest, Upon a thankless arrant: Fear not to touch the best; The truth shall be thy warrant: Go, since I needs must die, And give the world the lie. Say to the court, it glows. And shines like rotten wood; Say to the church, it shows What’s good, and doth no good: If church and court reply, Then give them both the lie.
Walter Raleigh truth
So when thou hast, as I Commanded thee, done blabbing — Although to give the lie Deserves no less than stabbing — Stab at thee he that will, No stab the soul can kill.
Walter Raleigh soul
Sir Walter Raleigh
Walter Raleigh
[History] hath triumphed over time, which besides it nothing but eternity hath triumphed over.
Walter Raleigh time
Whosoever, in writing a modern history, shall follow truth too near the heels, it may happily strike out his teeth.
Walter Raleigh truth
O eloquent, just, and mighty Death! whom none could advise, thou hast persuaded; what none hath dared, thou hast done; and whom all the world hath flattered, thou only hast cast out of the world and despised; thou hast drawn together all the far-stretched greatness, all the pride, cruelty, and ambition of man, and covered it all over with these two narrow words, Hic jacet [Here lies]!
Walter Raleigh words
For whosoever commands the sea commands the trade; whosoever commands the trade of the world commands the riches of the world, and consequently the world itself.
Walter Raleigh world
Even such is time, that takes on trust Our youth, our joys, our all we have, And pays us but with earth and dust; Who, in the dark and silent grave, When we have wandered all our ways, Shuts up the story of our days; But from this earth, this grave, this dust My God shall raise me up, I trust!
Walter Raleigh time
Our passions are most like to floods and streams; The shallow murmur, but the deep are dumb.
Walter Raleigh passion
Cowards fear to die; but courage stout, Rather than live in snuff, will be put out.
Walter Raleigh fear
Silence in love bewrays more woe Than words, though ne’er so witty: A beggar that is dumb, you know, May challenge double pity.
Walter Raleigh love
Fain would I, but I dare not; I dare, and yet I may not; I may, although I care not, for pleasure when I play not.
Walter Raleigh pleasure
Methought I saw the grave where Laura lay.
Walter Raleigh thought
Even such is time, that takes in trust Our youth, our joys, our all we have, And pays us but with age and dust; Who in the dark and silent grave, When we have wandered all our ways, Shuts up the story of our days. But from this earth, this grave, this dust, My God shall raise me up, I trust!
Walter Raleigh time
Shall I, like an hermit, dwell On a rock or in a cell?
Walter Raleigh
If she undervalue me, What care I how fair she be?
Walter Raleigh value
Fain would I climb, yet fear I to fall.
Walter Raleigh fear
Better were it to be unborn than ill-bred.
Walter Raleigh
Remember...that if thou marry for beauty, thou bindest thyself all thy life for that which perchance will never last nor please thee one year; and when thou hast it, it will be to thee of no price at all, for the desire dieth when it is attained, and the affection perisheth when it is satisfied.
Walter Raleigh life
Bestow therefore thy youth so, that thou mayest have comfort to remember it when it hath forsaken thee, and not sigh and grieve at the account thereof.
Walter Raleigh youth
But it is hard to know them [flatterers] from friends, they are so obsequious, and full of protestations; for as a wolf resembles a dog, so doth a flatterer a friend.
Walter Raleigh friends
Speaking much also is a sign of vanity; for he that is lavish in words is a niggard in deeds.
Walter Raleigh words
Be advised what thou dost discourse of, and what thou maintainest whether touching religion, state, or vanity; for if thou err in the first, thou shalt be accounted profane; if in the second, dangerous; if in the third, indiscreet and foolish.
Walter Raleigh religion
No man is esteemed for gay garments but by fools and women.
Walter Raleigh women
There is nothing exempt from the peril of mutation.
Walter Raleigh
All histories do shew, and wise politicians do hold it necessary that, for the well-governing of every Commonweal, it behoveth man to presuppose that all men are evil, and will declare themselves so to be when occasion is offered.
Walter Raleigh men
It is the nature of men, having escaped one extreme, which by force they were constrained long to endure, to run headlong into the other extreme, forgetting that virtue doth always consist in the mean.
Walter Raleigh nature
All, or the greatest part of men that have aspired to riches or power, have attained thereunto either by force or fraud, and what they have by craft or cruelty gained, to cover the foulness of their fact, they call purchase, as a name more honest. Howsoever, he that for want of will or wit useth not those means, must rest in servitude and poverty.
Walter Raleigh art
He that doth not as other men do, but endeavoureth that which ought to be done, shall thereby rather incur peril than preservation; for whoso laboureth to be sincerely perfect and good shall necessarily perish, living among men that are generally evil.
Walter Raleigh men
Historians desiring to write the actions of men, ought to set down the simple truth, and not say anything for love or hatred; also to choose such an opportunity for writing as it may be lawful to think what they will, and write what they think, which is a rare happiness of the time.
Walter Raleigh love
Whoso taketh in hand to govern a multitude, either by way of liberty or principality, and cannot assure himself of those persons that are enemies to that enterprise, doth frame a state of short perseverance.
Walter Raleigh self
Whoso desireth to govern well and securely, it behoveth him to have a vigilant eye to the proceedings of great princes, and to consider seriously of their designs.
Walter Raleigh desire
