Famous quotes containing the word southwell:

    Times go by turns, and chances change by course,
    From foul to fair, from better hap to worse.

    The sea of Fortune doth not ever flow,
    She draws her favours to the lowest ebb;
    Her tides have equal times to come and go,
    Her loom doth weave the fine and Coarsest web;
    —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)

    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)
