Strana 278 - To think those greater who're above us ; Another instance of my glory, Who live above you, twice two story ; And from my garret can look down On the whole street of Arlington. Greatness by poets still is painted With many followers acquainted : This, too, doth in my favour speak ; Your levee is but twice a week ; From mine I can exclude but one day, My door is quiet on a Sunday.
Strana 277 - WHILE at the helm of state you ride, Our nation's envy, and its pride ; While foreign courts with wonder gaze, And curse those councils which they praise ; Would you not wonder, sir, to view Your bard a greater man than you ? Which that he is you can not doubt, When you have read the sequel out.
Strana 278 - Indo, Am never seen but at my window. If with my greatness you're offended, The fault is easily amended ; For I'll come down, with wondrous ease, Into whatever place you please. I'm not ambitious ; little matters Will serve us great, but humble creatures. Suppose a secretary o...
Strana 240 - To confess the truth, my narrative is rather of such actions which he might have performed, or would, or should have performed, than what he really did; and may, in reality, as well suit any other such great man, as the person himself whose name it bears.
Strana 246 - I was last Winter laid up in the Gout, with a favourite Child dying in one Bed, and my Wife in a Condition very little better, on another, attended with other Circumstances, which served as very proper Decorations to such a Scene.
Strana 241 - But without considering Newgate as no other than Human Nature with its Mask off, which some very shameless Writers have done, a Thought which no Price should purchase me to entertain, I think we may be excused for suspecting, that the splendid Palaces of the Great are often no other than Newgate with the Mask on. Nor do I know any thing which can raise an honest Man's Indignation higher than that the same Morals should be in one Place attended with all imaginable Misery and Infamy, and in the other,...
Strana 63 - Henceforth I will know no degree, no difference between men, but what the standards of honour and virtue create : the noblest birth without these is but splendid infamy ; and a footman with these qualities, is a man of honour.
Strana 277 - And curse those councils which they praise ; Would you not wonder, sir, to view Your bard a greater man than you ? Which that he is, you cannot doubt, When you have read the sequel out. You know, great sir, that ancient fellows, Philosophers, and such folks, tell us, No great analogy between Greatness and happiness is seen. If then, as it might follow straight, Wretched to be, is to be great ; Forbid it, gods, that you should try What 'tis to be so great as I ! The family that dines the latest Is...
Strana 67 - Who performs a principal character in the play, Unfortunately has sent word, 'twill be impossible, having so long a part, To speak to the Prologue: he hasn't had time to get it by heart. I have been with the author, to know whaf s to be done, For, till the Prologue's spoke, sir, says I, we can't go on.
Strana 295 - When lo, in bright celestial state, Jove came and thunderM at the gate. " And can you, daughter, doubt to whom (He cried) belongs the happy doom, While C cks yet make bless'd the earth, C cks, who long before their birth, I, by your own petition moved, Decreed to be by all beloved.
