A Quote by Francis Beaumont on birds, earth, eternity, faith, heaven, rest, and soul

Faith without works is like a bird without wings; though she may hop about on earth, she will never fly to heaven. But when both are joined together, then doth the soul mount up to her eternal rest.

A Quote by Francis Beaumont on desires

The true way to gain much, is never to desire to gain too much. He is not rich that possesses much, but he that covets no more; and he is not poor that enjoys little, but he that wants too much.
