Сторінка 160 - 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.
Сторінка 31 - 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.
Сторінка 150 - FAREWELL, too little and too lately known, Whom I began to think and call my own: For sure our souls were near allied, and thine Cast in the same poetic mould with mine. One common note on either lyre did strike, And knaves and fools we both abhorred alike.

Сторінка 156 - MARK how the lark and linnet sing : With rival notes They strain their warbling throats, To welcome in the Spring.
Сторінка 242 - 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...
Сторінка 221 - 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.
