Ben Jonson Quote

A new disease? I know not, new or old, but it may well be called poor mortals plague for, like a pestilence, it doth infect the houses of the brain till not a thought, or motion, in the mind, be free from the black poison of suspect.


Every man in his humour. Every man out of his humour. Cynthia's revels; or, The fountain of self-love (ed. 1756)
