JOHN HOOLE
English dramatist and translator
(1727 - 1803)

A sturdy oak, which nature forms
  To brave a hundred winters storms,
    While round its head the whirlwinds blow,
      Remains with root infix'd below:
        When fell'd to earth, a ship it sails
          Through dashing waves and driving gales
            And now at sea, again defies
              The threat'ning clouds and howling skies.
      - [Oak]

The glorious frailty of the noble mind.
      - [Ambition]

The toils of honour dignify repose.
      - Metastasia--Achilles in Lucias
         (act III, last scene) [Repose]

'Tis often constancy to change the mind.
      - Metastasio--Sieves [Constancy]

For while the treason I detest,
  The traitor still I love.
      - Metastatio--Romulus and Hersilia
         (act I, sc. 5) [Treason]
