Pàgina 30 - Who builds a church to God, and not to Fame, Will never mark the marble with his name : Go, search it there, where to be born and die, Of rich and poor makes all the history ; Enough, that Virtue fill'd the space between ; Prov'd by the ends of being, to have been.
Pàgina 29 - Thrice happy man ! enabled to pursue What all so wish, but want the power to do ! Oh say, what sums that generous hand supply ? What mines to swell that boundless charity ? P. Of debts and taxes, wife and children clear, This man possess'd — five hundred pounds a year.
