When God at first made man,
Having a glass of blessings standing by;
Let us (said he) pour on him all we can:
Let the world's riches, which dispersed lie,
Contract into a span.
A woman and a glasse are ever in danger.
[A woman and a glass are ever in danger.]
The more women looke in their glasse, the lesse they looke to their house.
[The more women look in their glass, the less they look to their house.]
Drink not the third glass, which thou canst not tame,
When once it is within thee.
A man that looks on glass,
On it may stay his eye;
Or if he pleaseth, through it pass,
And then the heaven espy.
Whose house is of glass, must not throw stones at another.
Quote of the day
Life does not give itself to one who tries to keep all its advantages at once. I have often thought morality may perhaps consist solely in the courage of making a choice.
