C.N. Douglas, comp.  Forty Thousand Quotations: Prose and Poetical.  1917.
 
Marlowe
 
        Fair eldest child of love, thou spotless night!
Empress of silence, and the queen of sleep;
Who, with thy black cheek’s pure complexion,
Mak’st lovers’ eyes enamour’d of thy beauty.
  1
        Hell has no limits, nor is circumscribed
In one self place; but where we are is hell
And where hell is, there must we ever be;
And to be short, when all the world dissolves,
And every creature shall be purified,
All places shall be hell that are not heaven.
  2
        Honour is purchas’d by the deeds we do;
*  *  *  honour is not won,
Until some honourable deed be done.
  3
        The wondrous architecture of the world,
And measure every wandering planet’s course,
Still climbing after knowledge infinite,
And always moving as the restless spheres,
Will us to wear ourselves, and never rest
Until we reach the ripest fruit of all,
That perfect bliss and sole felicity,
The sweet fruition of a heavenly crown.
  4
                When the world dissolves,
And every creature shall be purified,
All places shall be hell that are not heaven.
  5
  All places shall be hell that are not heaven.  6
  And I will make the beds of roses.  7
  Clad in the beauty of a thousand stars.  8
  Excess of wealth is cause of covetousness.  9
  Goodness is beauty in its best estate.  10
  He must have a long spoon that eats with the devil.  11
  Infinite riches in a little room.  12
  Love me little, love me long.  13
  The prince of darkness is a gentleman.  14
