Frases William Davenant

„Since knowledge is but sorrow's spy,
It is not safe to know.“

Gondibert (1650), Book ii. Canto v. Stanza 37.

„For angling-rod he took a sturdy oake;
For line, a cable that in storm ne'er broke;
His hooke was such as heads the end of pole
To pluck down house ere fire consumes it whole;
The hook was baited with a dragon's tale,—
And then on rock he stood to bob for whale.“

—  William Davenant
