man who is virtuous from the love of virtue, from the obligation which he thinks he lies under to the Giver of all, there are ten thousand who are good only from their apprehensions of punishment. — Goldsmith.

MCCCXXIV. Well the learn'd and the judicious know, That satire scorns to stoop so meanly low, As any one abstracted fop to show. For, as when painters forin a matchless face, They from each fair one catch some diff'rent grace; And shining features in one portrait blend, To which no single beauty must pretend · So poets oft do in one piece expose Whole belles assemblees of coquets and beaux. Epilogue to the Way of the World. Congreve.

MCCCXXV. What a piece of work is man! How noble in reason! how infinite in faculties ! in form, and moving, how express and admirable! In action, how like an angel! in apprehension, how like a god! the beauty of the world! the paragon of animals! And yet, to me, what is this quintessence of dust? - Shakspeare.

MCCCXXVI.
Give me a look, give me a face,
That makes simplicity a grace;
Robes loosely flowing, hair as free:
Such sweet neglect more taketh me,
Than all the adulteries of art;
They strike mine eyes, but not mine heart.

Ben Jonsone
