第 40 頁 - HAPPY the man, whose wish and care A few paternal acres bound, Content to breathe his native air, In his own ground. Whose herds with milk, whose fields with bread. Whose flocks supply him with attire, Whose trees in summer yield him shade, In winter fire.
第 341 頁 - Words are like leaves ; and where they most abound, Much fruit of sense beneath is rarely found.
第 318 頁 - To tire our patience, than mislead our sense. Some few in that, but numbers err in this, Ten censure wrong for one who writes amiss; A fool might once himself alone expose, Now one in verse makes many more in prose. 'Tis with our judgments as our watches, none Go just alike, yet each believes his own.

第 83 頁 - All the flocks of Kedar shall be gathered together unto thee, the rams of Nebaioth shall minister unto thee : they shall come up with acceptance on Mine altar, and I will glorify the house of My glory.
第 344 頁 - Though oft the ear the open vowels tire; While expletives their feeble aid do join; And ten low words oft creep in one dull line: While they ring round the same unvary'd chimes, With sure Returns of still expected rhymes; Where'er you find "the cooling western breeze...
第 325 頁 - First follow Nature, and your judgment frame By her just standard, which is still the same...
