Sivu 135 - How charming is divine Philosophy! Not harsh and crabbed, as dull fools suppose, But musical as is Apollo's lute, And a perpetual feast of nectar'd sweets, Where no crude surfeit reigns.
Sivu 135 - Vice is a monster of such frightful mien, As, to be hated, needs but to be seen; But seen too oft, familiar with her face, We first endure, then pity, then embrace.

Sivu 180 - Wide wasting pest ! that rages unconfin'd, And crowds with crimes the records of mankind : For gold his sword the hireling ruffian draws, For gold the hireling judge distorts the laws : Wealth heap'd on wealth, nor truth nor safety buys, The dangers gather as the treasures rise.

Sivu 132 - Delightful task ! to rear the tender thought, And teach the young idea how to shoot...
Sivu 10 - Grub-street biographers, who watch for the death of a great man, like so many undertakers, on purpose to make a penny of him.
Sivu 20 - I am no herald to inquire of men's pedigrees; it sufficeth me if I know their virtues; which, if this young man's face be not a false witness, do better apparel his mind than you have done his body.
