Stran 48 - Tis an old maxim in the schools, That flattery's the food of fools; Yet now and then your men of wit Will condescend to take a bit.
Stran 60 - Inspir'd repuls'd battalions to engage, And taught the doubtful battle where to rage. So when an angel by divine command With rising tempests shakes a guilty land, Such as of late o'er pale Britannia past, Calm and serene he drives the furious blast ; And, pleas'd th' Almighty's orders to perform, Rides in the whirlwind, and directs the storm.
Stran 147 - On foreign mountains may the fun refine The grape's foft juice, and mellow it to wine, With citron groves adorn a diftant foil, And the fat olive fwell with floods of oil ; We envy not the warmer clime, that lies In ten degrees of more indulgent fkies, Nor at the coarfenefs of our heav'n repine,

Stran 242 - Whoe'er offends, at fome unlucky time Slides into verfe, and hitches in a rhyme, Sacred to Ridicule his whole life long, And the fad burthen of fome merry fong.
Stran 215 - Not sharp revenge, not hell itself, can find A fiercer torment than a guilty mind. Which day and night doth dreadfully accuse, Condemns the wretch, and still the charge renews.
