when all is done, I do not find she hath made it so much as proof against one disease, lest it should be thought to have made it no less than a prison to the soul.

Life of Lord Herbert of Cherbury.

MDLXV.

Ill news Are swallow-wing'd, but what's good walks on crutches.

Massinger. MDLXVI. I have often thought that a story-teller is born, as well as a poet.-Steele.

MDLXVII. An Englishman fears contempt more than death: he often flies to death as a refuge from its pressure, and dies when he fancies the world has ceased to esteem him.-Goldsmith.

MDLXVIII.
The painters are most envious, if they want
Good colours for preferment: virtuous ladies
Love this way to be flatter'd, and accuse
The workmen of detraction, if he add not
Some grace they cannot truly call their own.

Massinger. MDLXIX. Men do not always take the right way; for they often think they have totally taken leave of all business, when they have only exchanged one employment for another. There is little less trouble in forming a private family than a whole kingdom: wherever the mind is perplexed, it is an entire disorder, and domestic employments are not less troublesome, for being less important. Moreover, for having shaken off the court and public employment, we have not taken leave of the principal vexations of life. ---Montaigne.
