Virtue, our present peace, our future prize,
  Man's unprecarious, natural estate,
    Improvable at will, in virtue lies;
      Its tenure sure; its income is divine.
      - Edward Young

Whatever farce the boastful hero plays,
  Virtue alone has majesty in death.
      - Edward Young

To Virtue's humblest son let none prefer
  Vice, though descended from the conqueror.
      - Edward Young, Love of Fame
         (satire I, l. 141)

Pygmies are pygmies still, though percht on Alps;
  And pyramids are pyramids in vales.
    Each man makes his own stature, builds himself.
      Virtue alone outbuilds the Pyramids;
        Her monuments shall last when Egypt's fall.
      - Edward Young, Night Thoughts

His crimes forgive; forgive his virtues too.
      - Edward Young, Night Thoughts
         (night IX, l. 2,290)

Virtue alone outbuilds the pyramids:
  Her monuments shall last, when Egypt's fall.
      - Edward Young, Night Thoughts
         (night VI, l. 314)
