The mind maketh good or ill, wretch or happy, rich or poor.
I was promised on a time
To have reason for my rhyme;
From that time unto this season,
I received nor rhyme nor reason.
Gather the rose of love whilst yet is time.
Such is the power of love in gentle mind,
That it can alter all the course of kind.
She bathed with roses red,
And violets blew.
And all the sweetest flowres
That in the forrest grew.
Sluggish idleness--the nurse of sin.
For whatsoever from one place doth fall, Is with the tide unto an other brought: For there is nothing lost, that may be found, if sought.
But times do change and move continually.
For deeds to die, however nobly done, And thoughts of men to as themselves decay, But wise words taught in numbers for to run, Recorded by the Muses, live for ay.

Thankfulness is the tune of angels.
All for love, and nothing for reward.
For there is nothing lost, that may be found, if sought.
And he that strives to touch the stars
Oft stumbles at a straw.
All that in this world is great or gay,
Doth, as a vapor, vanish and decay.
Be bold, and everywhere be bold.

Love is the lesson which the Lord us taught.

Together linkt with adamantine chains.
Much more profitable and gracious is doctrine by example than by rule.
The noblest mind the best contentment has
Those that were up themselves, kept others low;
Those that were low themselves, held others hard;
He suffered them to ryse or greater grow;
But every one did strive his fellow down to throw.
Her angel's face, As the great eye of heaven shined bright, And made a sunshine in the shady place.
Fresh spring the herald of love's mighty king.
