Strana 85 - ALL human things are subject to decay, And, when Fate summons, monarchs must obey. This Flecknoe found, who, like Augustus, young Was called to empire, and had governed long. In prose and verse was owned, without dispute, Through all the realms of Nonsense absolute.
Strana 56 - tis all a cheat; Yet, fooled with hope, men favour the deceit; Trust on, and think to-morrow will repay: To-morrow's falser than the former day; Lies worse, and, while it says, we shall be blest With some new joys, cuts off what we possest.
Strana 140 - Fortune, that with malicious joy Does man, her slave, oppress, Proud of her office to destroy, Is seldom pleased to bless ; Still various, and unconstant still, But with an inclination to be ill, Promotes, degrades, delights in strife, And makes a lottery of life. I can enjoy her while she's kind, But when she dances in the wind, And shakes the wings, and will not stay, I puff the prostitute away.
Strana 88 - O'ertops thy talent in thy very trade : Doeg, to thee thy paintings are so coarse, A poet is, though he's the poet's horse. A double noose thou on thy neck dost pull, For writing treason, and for writing dull: To die for faction is a common evil, But to be hanged for nonsense is the devil.
Strana 87 - Twere pity treason at his door to lay, Who makes heaven's gate a lock to its own key: Let him rail on, let his invective Muse Have four and twenty letters to abuse, Which if he jumbles to one line of sense, Indict him of a capital offence.
Strana 6 - Oxford to him a dearer name shall be, Than his own mother university. Thebes did his green, unknowing youth engage; He chooses Athens in his riper age.
Strana 78 - Let friendship's holy band some names assure; Some their own worth, and some let scorn secure. Nor shall the rascal rabble here have place, Whom kings no titles gave, and God no grace: Not bull-faced Jonas, who could statutes draw To mean rebellion, and make treason law.
Strana 115 - Then no day void of bliss or pleasure leaving Ages shall slide away without perceiving: Cupid shall guard the door the more to please us. And keep out time and death when they would seize us; Time and death shall depart and say in flying Love has found out a way to live, by dying.
Strana 85 - Through all the realms of Non-sense, absolute. This aged prince now flourishing in peace, And blest with issue of a large increase...
Strana 81 - Shimei, whose youth did early promise bring Of zeal to God and hatred to his king, Did wisely from expensive sins refrain, And never broke the sabbath but for gain: Nor ever was he known an oath to vent, Or curse, unless against the government.
