Stran 101 - Born and educated in this country, I glory in the name of Briton ; and the peculiar happiness of my life will ever consist in promoting the welfare of a people, whose loyalty and warm affection to me I consider as the greatest and most permanent security of my throne...
Stran 105 - No'w from all Parts the swelling Kennels flow, And bear their Trophies with them as they go: Filth of all Hues and Odours seem to tell What Street they sail'd from, by their Sight and Smell.
Stran 92 - How oft, when press'd to marriage, have I said, Curse on all laws but those which love has made! Love, free as air, at sight of human ties, Spreads his light wings, and in a moment flies...
Stran 208 - When riotous Excess, with wasteful hand, Shakes life's frail glass, and hastes each ebbing sand, Unmindful from what stock he drew his birth, Untainted with one deed of real worth, Lothario, holding honour at no price, Folly to folly added, vice to vice, Wrought sin with greediness, and sought for shame With greater zeal than good men seek for fame.
Stran 34 - While they were inquiring and deliberating, they were summoned into the girl's chamber by some ladies who were near her bed, and who had heard knocks and scratches. When the gentlemen entered, the girl declared that she felt the spirit like a mouse upon her back, and was required to hold her hands out of bed.

Stran 223 - Pantomime thoughts, and style so full of trick, They even make a Merry Andrew sick ; Thoughts all so dull, so pliant in their growth, They're verse, they're prose, they're neither, and they're both) Shall...
Stran 69 - A hateful tax levied upon commodities, and adjudged not by the common judges of property, but wretches hired by those to whom excise is paid.
Stran 202 - Be planted on my grave, nor wither there; And when on travel bound, some rhyming guest Roams through the churchyard whilst his dinner's dress'd, Let it hold up this comment to his eyes, ' Life to the last enjoy'd, here Churchill lies ;' Whilst (O, what joy that pleasing flattery gives !) Reading my works, he cries —
Stran 6 - Scotland's welfare, and his own, By slow degrees, and course of office, drawn In mood and figure at the helm to yawn, Too mean (the worst of curses Heaven can send) To have a foe, too proud to have a friend; Erring by form, which blockheads sacred hold, Ne'er making new faults, and ne'er mending old, Rebukes my spirit, bids the daring Muse...
