WILLIAM GIFFORD
English critic and author
(1756 - 1826)

A woman scorn'd is pitiless as fate,
  For then the dread of shame adds stings to hate.
      - [Proverbs]

What boots it on the lineal tree to trace
  Through many a branch the founders of our race.
      - [Proverbs]

Verse sweetens toil, however rude the sound;
  She feels no biting pang the while she sings,
    Nor as she turns the giddy wheel around,
      Revolves the sad vicissitudes of things.
      - Contemplation [Songs]

Countless the various species of mankind,
  Countless the shades which sep'rate mind from mind;
    No general object of desire is known,
      Each has his will, and each pursues his own.
      - Perseus [Variety]
