214. oldal - Thy betters, that laugh with thee, laugh at thee: and who are they ? The fools of quality at court, and those who ape them in the city. The varieties of thy life are pitiful rewards, and painful abuses ; for the same trick that gets thee a guinea to-day, shall get thee beaten out of doors to-morrow.
184. oldal - Leave, my dear sir, such rash consequences to fools and libertines«— Let us be careful to distinguish between virtue and the appearance of it. Guard, if possible, against doing honour to hypocrisy.
