“SIR WILLIAM TEMPLE observes that of all the members of mankind that live within the compass of a thousand years, for one man that is born capable of making a great poet, there may be a thousand born capable of making as great generals and ministers of state as any in story. Here is a statesman's opinion of poetry: it is honorable to him and the art. Such a poet of a thousand years was Pope. A thousand years will roll away before such another can be hoped for in literature.”

BYRON.
