Isaiah. I. 8.


How small of all that human hearts endure,
That part which laws or kings can cause or cure!

Glides the smooth current of domestic joy.

Our law calleth a man's house, his castle, meaning that he may defend himselfe therein. LAMBARD-Eiren. II. VII. 257. (1588)

Cling to thy home! If there the meanest shed
Yield thee a hearth and shelter for thy head,
And some poor plot, with vegetables stored,
Be all that Heaven allots thee for thy buard,
Unsavory bread, and herbs that scatter'd grow
Wild on the river-brink or mountain-brow;
Yet e'en this cheerless mansion shall provide
More heart's repose than all the world beside.
