 << Prev Page    Displaying page 18 of 18

There buds the promise of celestial worth.
      - The Last Day (bk. III, l. 317) [Promises]

The love of praise, howe'er conceal'd by art,
  Reigns more or less, and glows, in ev'ry heart.
      - The Love of Fame (satire I, l. 51)
        [Praise]

To-morrow is a satire on to-day,
  And shows its weakness.
      - The Old Man's Relapse (l. 6) [Tomorrow]

Great let me call him, for he conquered me.
      - The Revenge (act I, sc. 1) [Greatness]

Souls made of fire and children of the sun,
  With whom Revenge is virtue.
      - The Revenge (act V) [Revenge]

The blood will follow where the knife is driven,
  The flesh will quiver where the pincers tear.
      - The Revenge (act V) [Results]

In records that defy the tooth of time.
      - The Statesman's Creed [Time]

Their feet through faithless leather met the dirt,
  And oftener chang'd their principles than shirt.
      - To Mr. Pope (epistle I, l. 283) [Apparel]
