Quotes by John Lyly

To give reason for fancy were to weigh the fire, and measure the wind.
The sun shineth upon the dunghill, and is not corrupted.
As the best wine doth make the sharpest vinegar, so the deepest love turneth to the deadliest hate.
A clear conscience is a sure card.
Night hath a thousand eyes.
We might knit that knot with our tongues that we shall never undo with our teeth.
A merry companion is as good as a wagon.
Marriages are made in heaven and consummated on Earth.
He that loseth his honesty hath nothing else to lose.
Many strokes overthrow the tallest oaks.
The true measure of life is not length, but honesty.
Love is made in heaven and consummated on earth.
