160. oldal - Three poets in three distant ages born, Greece, Italy, and England did adorn; The first in loftiness of thought surpassed, The next in majesty; in both the last. The force of Nature could no further go, To make a third she joined the former two.
31. oldal - Since every man who lives is born to die, And none can boast sincere felicity; With equal mind what happens let us bear, Nor joy nor grieve too much for things beyond our care. Like pilgrims, to the' appointed place we tend ; The world's an inn, and death the journey's end. E'en kings but play; and when their part is done, Some other, worse or better, mount the throne.

242. oldal - Was the first mountebank that trod the stage ; Yet Athens never knew your learned sport, Of tossing poets in a tennis-court. But 'tis the talent of our English nation Still to be plotting some new reformation...
221. oldal - Tis much more hard to please himself than you : And, out of no feign'd modesty, this day Damns his laborious trifle of a play : Not that it's worse than what before he writ, But he has now another taste of wit; And, to confess a truth, though out of time, Grows weary of his long-loved mistress, Rhyme.
221. oldal - Passion's too fierce to be in fetters bound, And nature flies him like enchanted ground: What verse can do he has perform'd in this, Which he presumes the most correct of his...
