Laws are generally found to be nets of such a texture. as the little creep through, the great break through, and the middle-sized entangled in.
      - On Politics [Law]

A poet that fails in writing becomes often a morose critic; the weak and insipid white wine makes at length excellent vinegar.
      - On Writing and Books [Criticism]

A little bench of heedless bishops here,
  And there a chancellor in embryo.
      - The School Mistress (st. 28) [Teaching]

In every village marked with little spire,
  Embowered in trees, and hardly known to fame.
      - The Schoolmistress [Villages]

Pun-provoking thyme.
      - The Schoolmistress (st. 11) [Thyme]

Their books of stature small they take in hand,
  Which with pellucid horn secured are;
    To save from finger wet the letters fair.
      - The Schoolmistress (st. 18) [Books]

Her cap, far whiter than the driven snow,
  Emblem right meet of decency does yield.
      - The Schoolmistress (st. 6) [Apparel]

Perch'd on the cedar's topmost bough,
  And gay with gilded wings,
    Perchance the patron of his vow,
      Some artless linnet sings.
      - Valentine's Day [Linnets]

Whoe'er has travel'd life's dull round,
  Where'er his stages may have been,
    May sigh to think he still has found
      The warmest welcome, at an inn.
      - Written at an Inn at Henley [Inns]
