Lands mortgaged may return, and more esteem'd,
But honesty once pawn'd, is ne'er redeem'd.

Thomas Middleton (c.1580-1627) was an English Elizabethan playwright and poet. His best-known plays are The Changeling (written with William Rowley) and Women Beware Women. It is also widely believed that he wrote The Revenger's Tragedy, previously attributed to Cyril Tourneur, and collaborated with Shakespeare on the scenes involving the Weird Sisters and Hecate in Macbeth. Middleton was appointed City Chronologer of the City of London in 1620, a post that he held until his death. His successor in the post was Ben Jonson.
