TOMAS DE YRIARTE (IRIARTE)
Spanish (Teneriffe) poet and translator
(1750 - 1791)

Let the man who despises style, and says that he attends to the matter, recollect that if the lace is sold at a higher price than the noble metal, it owes its chief value to its elegance, and not to its material.
      - [Style]

The qualities all in a bee that we meet,
  In an epigram never should fail;
    The body should always be little and sweet,
      And a sting should be felt in its tail.
      - attributed to,
        "American Epigrams" by Brander Matthews in "Harper's Monthly"
        [Epigrams]

The quill hath a good tongue.
      - [Quill]

Dress does not give knowledge.
  [Sp., La ropa no da ciencia.]
      - Fables (XXVII) [Apparel]

The foolish and vulgar are always accustomed to value equally the good and the bad.
  [Sp., Siempre acostumbra hacer el vulgo necio,
    De le bueno y lo malo igual aprecio.]
      - Fables (XXVIII) [Worth]
