Stran 59 - Townfolks my strength ; a daintier judge applies His praise to sleight which from good use doth rise ; Some lucky wits impute it but to chance...
Stran xxxiv - I was confirmed in this opinion, that he who would not be frustrate of his hope to write well hereafter in laudable things, ought himself to be a true poem...
Stran 7 - Only the poet, disdaining to be tied to any such subjection, lifted up with the vigor of his own invention, doth grow, in effect, into another nature, in making things either better than nature bringeth forth, or, quite anew, forms such as never were in nature...
