Hannah Cowley

  • Five minutes — Zounds! I have been five minutes too late all my lifetime!

  • ... the common events of this little dirty world are not worth talking about, unless you embellish them!

  • Vanity, like murder, will out.

  • If a man does a foolish thing once, he'll hear of it all his life.

  • He has a very pretty kind of conversation; 'tis like a parenthesis. ... Yes, it might be all left out, and never missed.

Hannah Cowley, English playwright
