What ill-starr'd rage
  Divides a friendship long confirm'd by age?
      - The Dunciad (bk. III, l. 173) [Friendship]

But blind to former as to future fate,
  What mortal knows his pre-existent state?
      - The Dunciad (bk. III, l. 47) [Fate]

Hence the fool's paradise, the statesman's scheme,
  The air-built castle, and the golden dream,
    The maid's romantic wish, the chemist's flame,
      And poet's vision of eternal fame.
      - The Dunciad (bk. III, l. 9) [Visions]

Another yet the same.

  And all the western world believe and sleep.

And you, my Critics! in the chequer'd shade,
  Admire new light thro' holes yourselves have made.

So upright Quakers please both man and God.

To happy convents, bosom'd deep in vines,
  Where slumber abbots purple as their wines.
      - The Dunciad (bk. IV, l. 301) [Religion]

Thee too, my Paridel! she mark'd thee there,
  Stretch'd on the rack of a too easy chair,
    And heard thy everlasting yarn confess
      The Pains and Penalties of Idleness.
      - The Dunciad (bk. IV, l. 341) [Idleness]

And empty heads console with empty sound.
      - The Dunciad (bk. IV, l. 542) [Speech]

Others import yet nobler arts from France,
  Teach kings to fiddle, and make senates dance.
      - The Dunciad (bk. IV, l. 597) [Dancing]

Lo: thy dread empire, Chaos, is restored;
  Light dies before thy uncreating word:
    Thy hand, great Anarch! lets the curtain fall;
      And universal darkness buries all.
      - The Dunciad (bk. IV, l. 649) [Chaos]

Religion, blushing, veils her sacred fires,
  And unawares Morality expires.

Then take him to develop, if you can
  And hew the bock off, and get out the man.
      - The Dunciad (IV, 269) [Education]

The world recedes; it disappears;
  Heav'n opens on my eyes; my ears
    With sounds seraphic ring:
      Lend, lend your wings! I mount! I fly!
        O Grave! where is thy victory?
          O Death! where is thy sting?
      - The Dying Christian to His Soul [Death]

Vital spark of heav'nly flame!
  Quit, oh quit, this mortal frame!
    Trembling, hoping, ling'ring, flying,
      Oh, the pain, the bliss of dying! . . .
        Hark! they whisper; angels say,
          Sister Spirit, come away!
      - The Dying Christian to His Soul,
        paraphrase of Emperor Hadrian's "Ode of the Christian to His Soul" in the "Spectator", Nov. 15, 1711
        [Death : Soul]

Vital spark of heavenly flame!

There Affectation, with a sickly mien,
  Shows in her cheek the roses of eighteen.

And all Arabia breathes from yonder box.
      - The Rape of the Lock (canto I, l. 134)

And binding nature fast in fate,
  Left free the human will.
      - The Universal Prayer (st. 3) [Will]
