Who is fulke greville?

Famous quotes containing the words fulke greville and/or greville:

    Man, dreame no more of curious mysteries,
    As what was here before the world was made,
    The first Mans life, the state of Paradise,
    Where heaven is, or hell’s eternall shade,
    For Gods works are like him, all infinite;
    And curious search, but craftie sinnes delight.
    Fulke Greville (1554–1628)

    O wearisome condition of humanity!
    Born under one law, to another bound;
    Vainly begot, and yet forbidden vanity,
    Created sick, commanded to be sound.
    What meaneth nature by these diverse laws?
    Passion and reason self-division cause.
    —Fulke Greville (1554–1628)
