 << Prev Page    Displaying page 5 of 5

Appearances to save, his only care;
  So things seem right, no matter what they are.
      - The Rosciad (l. 299) [Appearance]

He mouths a sentence as curs mouth a bone.
      - The Rosciad (l. 322) [Oratory : Speech]

Awkward, embarrassed, stiff, without the skill
  Of moving gracefully or standing still,
    One leg, as if suspicious of his brother,
      Desirous seems to run away from t'other.
      - The Rosciad (l. 438) [Awkwardness]

Fashion--a word which knaves and fools may use,
  Their knavery and folly to excuse.
      - The Rosciad (l. 455) [Fashion]

To copy beauties, forfeits all pretence
  To fame--to copy faults, is want of sense.
      - The Rosciad (l. 457) [Quotations]

With various readings stored his empty skull,
  Learn'd without sense, and venerably dull.
      - The Rosciad (l. 591) [Stupidity]

Not without art, but yet to Nature true.
      - The Rosciad (l. 699) [Nature]

What's a fine person, or a beauteous face,
  Unless deportment gives them decent grace?
    Blessed with all other requisites to please,
      Some want the striking elegance of ease;
        The curious eye their awkward movement tires:
          They seem like puppets let about by wires.
      - The Rosciad (l. 741) [Awkwardness]

But, spite of all the criticising elves,
  Those who would make us feel, must feel themselves.
      - The Rosciad (l. 961) [Criticism : Feeling]
