WILLIAM MASON
English poet, painter and musician
(1725 - 1797)

There is a grace in wild variety surpassing rule and order.
      - [Variety]

We know there oft is found an avarice in grief; and the wan eye of sorrow loves to gaze upon its secret hoard of treasured woes, and pine in solitude.
      - [Grief]

With what a heavy and retarding weight does expectation load the wing of time.
      - [Expectation]

Vain is the hope by colouring to display
  The bright effulgence of the noontide ray
    Or paint the full-orb'd ruler of the skies
      With pencils dipt in dull terrestrial dyes.
      - Fresnoy's Art of Painting [Painting]

The fattest hog in Epicurus' sty.
      - Heroic Epistle [Swine]

There is a solemn luxury in grief.
      - The English Garden (l. 596) [Grief]
