Cervantes

Sad Winter now declines,
Each Bird doth choose a mate,
This day's Saint Valentine's;
For that good Bishop's sake
Get up, and let us see
What Beauty it shall be
That Fortune us assigns.

Michael Drayton

Thomas Hobbes

Fortune is like glass - the brighter the glitter, the more easily broken.
Publilius Syrus
