Oh ye, who teach th' Ingenuous youth of nations--
  Holland, France, England, Germany, or Spain--
    I pray ye flog them upon all occasions;
      It mends their morals; never mind the pain.
      - [Education]

Oh! in that future let us think
  To hold each heart the heart that shares;
    With them the immortal waters drink,
      And, soul in soul, grow deathless theirs!
      - [Eternity]

On with the dance, let joy be unconfined.
      - [Proverbs]

One hates an author that is all author; fellows in foolscap uniform turned up with ink.
      - [Authorship]

One last long sigh to love and thee, then back to busy life again.
      - [Parting]

One of the pleasures of reading old letters is the knowledge that they need no answer.
      - [Correspondence]

One struggle more, and I am free
  From pangs that rend my heart in twain;
    One last long sigh to love and thee,
      Then back to busy life again.
      - [Farewell]

Ours are the tears, though few, sincerely shed,
  While ocean shrouds and sepulchres our dead.
      - [Sea]

Passion raves herself to rest, or flies.
      - [Satiety]

Perhaps he hath great projects in his mind,
  To build a college, or to found a race,
    An hospital, a church--and leave behind
      Some dome surmounted by his meagre face,
        Perhaps he fain would liberate mankind
          Even with the very ore which makes them base;
            Perhaps he would be wealthiest of his nation,
              Or revel in the joys of calculation.
      - [Wealth]

"Petticoat influence" is a great reproach,
  Which e'en those who obey would fain be thought
    To fly from, as from hungry pikes a roach;
      But since beneath it upon earth we're brought
        By various joltings of life's hackney coach,
          I for one venerate a petticoat--
            A garment of mystical sublimity,
              No matter whether russet, silk, or dimity.
      - [Women]

Prolonged endurance tames the bold.
      - [Endurance]

Ready money is Aladdin's lamp.
      - [Money]

Revenge is lost in agony, and wild remorse to rage succeeds.
      - [Revenge]

Scandal has something so piquant, it is a sort of cayenne to the mind.
      - [Scandal]

Self-defence is a virtue,
  Sole bulwark of all right.
      - [Self-defense]

She can change her
  Mind like the wind: whatever she has said
    Or done, is light to what she'll say or do.
      - [Proverbs]

She had resolved that be should travel through
  All European climes, by land or sea,
    To mend his former morals, and get new,
      Especially in France and Italy,
        (At least this is the thing most people do).
      - [Travel]

She plac'd it sad, with needless fear,
  Lest time should shake my wavering soul
    Unconscious that her image there
      Held every sense in fast control.
      - [Remembrance]

She turned to him and smiled, but in that sort which makes not others smile.
      - [Smiles]

She was a soft landscape of mild earth,
  Where all was harmony, and calm, and quiet,
    Luxuriant, budding; cheerful without mirth,
      Which, if not happiness, is much more nigh it
        Than are your mighty passions.
      - [Women]

Ships, wealth, general confidence--
  All were his;
    He counted them at break of day,
      And when the sun set! where were they?
      - [Change]

Shows that we build, when we should but entomb us.
      - [Proverbs]

Skill'd by a touch to deepen scandal's tints,
  With all the high mendacity of hints,
    While mingling truth with falsehood, sneers with smiles,
      A thread of candor with a web of wiles.
      - [Gossip]

Skilled by a touch to deepen scandal's tints,
  With all the kind mendacity of hints,
    While mingling truth with falsehood, sneers with smiles,
      A thread of candor with a web of wiles;
        A plain blunt show of briefly-spoken seeming,
          To hide her bloodless heart's soul-harden'd scheming;
            A lap of lies, a face formed to conceal;
              And, without feeling, mock at all who feel:
                With a vile mask the Gorgon would disown,
                  A cheek of parchment, and an eye of stone.
      - [Scandal : Slander]
