Donne, the delight of Phæbus and each muse,
Who, to thy one, all other brains refuse ;
Whose every work, of thy most early wit,
Came forth example, and remains so yet :
Longer a knowing than most wits do live,
And which no affection praise enough can give !
To it thy language, letters, arts, best life,
Which might with half mankind maintain a strife;
All which I meant to praise, and yet I would ;
But leave because I cannot as I should.

BEN JONSON.

His fancy was inimitably high, equalled only by his great wit; both being made useful by a commanding judgment.

IZAAK WALTON.
