Strana 228 - Who gave the ball, or paid the visit last; One speaks the glory of the British Queen, And one describes a charming Indian screen; A third interprets motions, looks, and eyes; At ev'ry word a reputation dies. Snuff, or the fan, supply each pause of chat, With singing, laughing, ogling, and all that.
Strana 194 - Vice is a monster of such frightful mien, As, to be hated, needs but to be seen; But seen too oft, familiar with her face, We first endure, then pity, then embrace.
Strana 12 - Wide-pour'd abroad behold the giddy crew ; See how they dash along from wall to wall ! At every door, hark how they thundering call ! Good Lord ! what can this giddy rout excite ? Why, on each other with fell tooth to fall ; A neighbour's fortune, fame, or peace to blight, And make new tiresome parties for the coming night. LIT. The puzzling sons of party next appear'd, In dark cabals and nightly juntos met ; And now they whisper'd close, now shrugging rear'd Th' important shoulder : then, as if...

Strana 178 - And when thou wak'st thou'le sweetly smile: But smile not as thy father did, To cozen maids : nay, God forbid...
Strana 18 - But greater yours sincerity to bear. Hard is the fortune that your sex attends ; Women, like princes, find few real friends : All who approach them their own ends pursue ; Lovers and ministers are seldom true.
Strana 135 - Now whither shall I fly to find relief? What charitable hand will aid me now? Will stay my failing steps, support my ruins, And heal my wounded mind with balmy comfort?
