For all true love is grounded on esteem:
Plainness and truth gain more a generous heart
Than all the crooked subtleties of art.“

„There are few have Dana's fortune, to have God and gold togather.“

—  George Villiers, 2nd Duke of Buckingham
Commonplace book, P. 221 Often misquoted as "How few, like Daniel, have God and gold together".

„Make my breast
Transparent as pure crystal, that the world,
Jealous of me, may see the foulest thought
My heart holds.“

Misattributed, Beaumont and Fletcher Philaster, Act III, sc. ii, line 144. These lines are used almost unaltered ("holds" becoming "does hold") in Act III, sc. ii of Buckingham's The Restauration, an adaptation of Philaster. They appear with an attribution to Buckingham in many 19th century collections of quotations, e.g. Henry George Bohn A Dictionary of Quotations from the English Poets (1867) p. 63, and hence also on several quotation websites.
