Страница 55 - Compute the morn and evening to the day ; The whole amount of that enormous fame, A tale, that blends their glory with their shame ! Know then this truth (enough for man to know), 'Virtue alone is happiness below.
Страница 85 - Pretty! in amber to observe the forms Of hairs, or straws, or dirt, or grubs, or worms! The things, we know, are neither rich nor rare, But wonder how the devil they got there.
Страница 7 - AWAKE, my ST. JOHN ! leave all meaner things To low ambition, and the pride of kings.

Страница 41 - Who builds a church to God, and not to Fame. Will never mark the marble with his name : Go, search it there, where to be born and die, Of rich and poor, makes all the history ; Enough, that virtue fill'd the space between ; Proved, by the ends of being, to have been.
