James Wood, comp.  Dictionary of Quotations.  1899.
 
Shirley
 
  Death lays his icy hand on kings.  1
  Fathers their children and themselves abuse / That wealth a husband for their daughters choose.  2
  Knaves will thrive when honest plainness knows not how to live.  3
  Learning is an addition beyond / Nobility of birth; honour of blood, / Without the ornament of knowledge, is / A glorious ignorance.  4
  Nothing is constant but a virtuous mind.  5
  Only the actions of the just / Smell sweet and blossom in the dust.  6
  There’s no armour against fate.  7
