William Stevenson

From Quotes
The really happy man never laughs—seldom—though he may smile. He does not need to laugh, for laughter, like weeping is a relief of mental tension—and the happy are not over strung.
Prof. F. A. P. Aveling

William Stevenson (1530?–1575) was an English poet.


  • I cannot eat but little meat,
    My stomach is not good;
    But sure I think that I can drink
    With him that wears a hood.
    Though I go bare, take ye no care,
    I nothing am a-cold;
    I stuff my skin so full within
    Of jolly good ale and old.
    • Poem Jolly Good Ale and Old
