As there are certain mountebanks and quacks in physic, so there are much the same also in divinity.
      - Bishop Robert South

The pulpit is a clergyman's parade; the parish is his field of active service.
      - Robert Southey

Their sheep have crusts, and they the bread;
  The chips and they the cheer:
    They have the fleece, and eke the flesh,
      (O seely sheep the while!)
        The corn is theirs--let others thresh,
          Their hands they may not file.
      - Edmund Spenser

His talk was now of tythes and flues;
  He smok'd his pipe, and read the news;
    Knew how to preach old sermons next,
      Vamp'd in the preface and the text;
        At christenings well could act his part,
          And had the service all by heart;
            Wish'd women might have children fast,
              And thought whose sow had farrow'd last;
                Against dissenters would repine,
                  And stood up firm for right divine;
                    Found his head fill'd with many a system,
                      But classic authors--he ne'er miss'd 'em.
      - Jonathan Swift

I never saw, heard, nor read, that the clergy were beloved in any nation where Christianity was the religion of the country.
      - Jonathan Swift
