Famous quotes containing the word southwell:

    Not Solomon, for all his wit,
    Nor Samson, though he were so strong,
    No king nor person ever yet
    Could ‘scape, but death laid him along:
    —Robert Southwell (1561?–1595)

    As in hoary winter’s night stood shivering in the snow,
    Surprised I was with sudden heat which made my heart to glow;
    And lifting up a fearful eye to view what fire was near,
    A pretty Babe all burning bright did in the air appear;
    —Robert Southwell (1561?–1595)

    grant me grace, O god, that I
    My life may mend, sith I must die.
    —Robert Southwell (1561?–1595)
