When at the close of each sad, sorrowing day,
  Fancy restores what vengeance snatch'd away.

How glowing guilt exalts the keen delight!
      - Eloisa to Abelard (l. 230) [Guilt]

Where round some mould'ring tow'r pale ivy creeps,
  And low-brow'd rocks hang nodding o'er the deeps.

Soon as thy letters trembling I unclose,
  That well-known name awakens all my woes.

And more than echoes talk along the walls.

O name forever sad! forever dear!
  Still breath'd in sighs, still usher'd with a tear.

See my lips tremble and my eyeballs roll,
  Suck my last breath, and catch my flying soul!
      - Eloisa to Abelard (l. 323) [Death]

Line after line my gushing eye o'erflow,
  Led thro' a said variety of woe:
    Now warm in love, now with'ring in my bloom,
      Lost in a convent's solitary gloom!
      - Eloisa to Abelard (l. 35) [Post]

O Death, all eloquent! you only prove
  What dust we dote on, when 'tis man we love.
      - Eloisa to Abelard (l. 355) [Death]

Heav'n first taught letters for some wretch's aid,
  Some banish'd lover, or some captive maid.
      - Eloisa to Abelard (l. 51) [Post]

And truths divine came mended from that tongue.

Curse on all laws but those which love has made.

He best can paint them who shall feel them most.

How shall I lose the sin yet keep the sense,
  And love th' offender, yet detest the offence?

Condemned whole years in absence to deplore,
  And image charms he must behold no more.

Speed the soft intercourse from soul to soul,
  And waft a sigh from Indus to the Pole.

You beat your pate, and fancy wit will come;
  Knock as you please, there's nobody at home.

The stoic husband was the glorious thing.
  The man had courage, was a sage, 'tis true,
    And lov'd his country.
      - Epilogue to Rowe's Jane Shore [Husbands]

Well, if our author in the wife offends
  He has a husband that will make amends;
    He draws him gentle, tender, and forgiving,
      And sure such kind good creatures may be living.
      - Epilogue to Rowe's Jane Shore [Husbands]

Let humble Allen, with an awkward shame,
  Do good by stealth, and blush to find it Fame.

All, look up with reverential awe,
  At crimes that 'scape, or triumph o'er the law.

  Scarce hurts the lawyer, but undoes the scribe.
