And all the carnall beauty of my wife, is but skin-deep, but to two senses known.

- English poet Sir Thomas Overbury, from his poem The Wife, establishing
the basis for the phrase "Beauty is only skin deep."

Be warned, you stage strutters all,
Lest you again be catched,
And such a burning do befall
As to them whose house was thatched;
Forbear your whoring, breeding biles,
And lay up that expense for tiles.
