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)

    Three things there be in man’s opinion dear,
    Fame, many friends, and fortune’s dignities:
    False visions all, which in our sense appear,
    To sanctify desire’s idolatry.
    —Fulke Greville (1554–1628)
