Seite 503 - His onset was violent: those passages which while they stood single had passed with little notice, when they were accumulated and exposed together, excited horror; the wise and the pious caught the alarm, and the nation wondered why it had so long suffered irreligion and licentiousness to be openly taught at the public charge.

Seite 502 - Venus. Calms appear when storms are past; Love will have his hour at last: Nature is my kindly care; Mars destroys, and I repair; Take me, take me, while you may, Venus comes not every day.
Seite 506 - The poets, who must live by courts, or starve, Were proud so good a government to serve ; And, mixing with buffoons and pimps profane, Tainted the stage for some small snip of gain.
