James Wood, comp.  Dictionary of Quotations.  1899.
 
Sir Thomas Wyatt
 
  The fire that all things else consumeth clean / May hurt and heal.  1
  The longer life the more offence, / The more offence the greater pain, / The greater pain the less defence, / The less defence the lesser gain.  2
  The shorter life, less count I find, / The less account the sooner made, / The account soon made, the merrier mind, / The merrier mind doth thought evade.  3
  Who judgeth well, well God them send; / Who judgeth evil, God them amend.  4
