"Si quid meremur fana pofteritas fciet."

Od. Ad J. Rous. v. 86.

"While I fit with thee, I feem in Heaven;

"And fweeter thy difcourfe is to my ear

"Than fruits of palm-tree, pleasantest to thirst

"And hunger both, from labour, at the hour

"Of sweet repaft; they fatiate, and foon fill,

"Though pleasant; but thy words, with grace divine
"Imbued, bring to their fweetness no fatiety."

Par. Loft, B. viii. 210.
