Cyril Tourneur (ca 1575 – February 28, 1626) was an English dramatist who enjoyed his greatest success during the reign of King James I of England.
- A drunkard clasp his teeth and not undo 'em,
To suffer wet damnation to run through 'em.
- joy's a subtle elf, I think man's happiest when he forgets himself.
